Data analysis involves inspecting, cleaning, organizing and interpreting data with the goal of discovering some meaning behind it. Each data set tells a different story, to keep it simple, you can think of a Data Analyst as the story teller.
What can data analysis do for you? Well, when performed correctly, data analysis can offer a great deal of useful information. In the context of our work, data analysis is used to reveal information about what is happening in and around our client’s businesses. All businesses whether mom and pop shops or fortune 500 companies, collect and hold data. We are often called upon to help identify and interpret patterns and trends around a company that can be used for decision making and future planning.
Data analysis can:
- provide information about your market and customer base
- improve your operations and internal efficiency
- identify internal and external vulnerabilities
Often times, businesses hold large data sets that contain valuable information, the problem is that there is no one on staff who is equipped to process that data so, it sits unutilized. Knowing which analytic techniques to use in a data situation takes training and specific knowledge. The decision to invest in a full-time, permanent Data Analyst and / or an analytic software package is a big one and many business owners are simply not in a position to do that. That’s where we come in. Contracting the work out can be both cost effective and timely.
