The amount of data being produced and captured is increasing at an exponential rate across business domains. International Data Corp. (IDC) forecasts that data production will increase to 40 Zettabytes (or 40 billion terabytes) by 2020, 50 times more than in 2010. This enormous amount of data can be used by business enterprises to generate new insights, enable better decision making and improve processes of organizations. Business analytics involves the analysis of data using statistical, machine learning and quantitative techniques with the purpose of understanding past performance of the business and generating new insights for the future. Despite the growing significance of business analytics, the supply of trained analytics professionals is lagging far behind the demand for such professionals. In India, the analytics market is expected to double between 201 and 2018, reaching a figure of US$ 2.3 billion by 2018, according to a report published by Nasscom and Blueocean Market Intelligence.
