This article was written by Tristan Handy. Tristan is the founder and president of Fishtown Analytics: helping startups implement advanced analytics. I'm very confident of that, because today, everyone needs analytics. Not just product, not just marketing, not just finance… sales, fulfillment, everyone at a startup needs analytics today. This post is about how to create the analytics competency at your organization.
I am an undergraduate (or any other) student & want to pursue career in Analytics, what should I do? I want to build a career / shift my career in Business Analytics, how should I go about doing so? Further, I receive multiple queries through mail / social media / comments asking the same. In order to make sure these queries are addressed in best possible manner, I thought it's best to write an article on this and provide a starting platform for everyone. While the subject itself is wide, I'll provide an overview of various things which can be done and focus on specific sub-topics through additional posts later on.
This year's Big Data Streaming Analytics Wave for 2016 by Forrester, co-authored by Mike Gualtieri and Rowan Curran, is an important report about the streaming analytics market, which is projected to grow over 40% in coming years. Rowan blogged that streaming analytics will transform the Internet of Things into the Internet of Analytics. For sure, the Internet of Analytics will change the field of analytics and cognitive computing - but how? What makes IoT Analytics different than traditional Analytics? Each of these predictions is explored in depth on the TIBCO Blog, based on lessons learned during the dramatic adoption of streaming analytics on Wall Street over the past decade, a current view on the streaming analytics market, technology forces such as cloud, and developments in the analytics market.
