WHAT IS DATA ANALYTICS?

Data Analytics is the analysis of data which is transformed into information. This information is used by people within an organisation to make intelligent business decisions.

A Data Analyst may work in a variety of companies and enterprises assisting with the management, analysis, visualisation, and storytelling of data for internal and external stakeholders. The exact responsibilities of a Data Analyst will vary greatly based on the size and structure of a given company. In smaller companies, a Data Analyst may fulfill a role that overlaps with that of a Data Engineer or Data Scientist, and can include overall management and development of the data pipeline. In larger companies, a Data Analyst may fill a more specific role, i.e. conducting only data visualisations, or contributing to a single part of the data pipeline.
