Success in any business means you're comfortable analyzing data.

We live in a digitized world where data is accumulating faster than we have time to make sense of it. It is estimated, there has been more data collected in the past two years then in all the years before combined. Companies know there is value in that data but don’t have enough talent to bring that value forward. That is data analytics. Converting data to insights so that organizations can make better decisions.
