Data Analytics makes meaningful and useful inferences out of large data sets. Its techniques can reveal trends and metrics that would otherwise be lost in the mass of information. This information can then be used to optimize the overall efficiency of a process, business or system. The ability to act on data lags far behind the ability to collect and store data, which is why data analytics professionals are in high demand.
