Leaders in Big Data and Analytics recruitment
Data is at the heart of the seemingly inexorable march of technological advancement, and Business Intelligence (BI), Big Data & Analytics are fast becoming the tools with which organisations are choosing to make their decisions. These tools allow businesses to engage with information relating to their operations, giving them an insight into their customers’ behavior, current trends and gives them the agility in real time to plan ahead.
BI is essentially the conversion of raw data into digestible and meaningful information. It is used in most data-driven businesses across different sectors, from insurance and banking, to public sector organisations, advertising agencies, the retail industry and many more. They all now use BI & Analytics tools, and depending on their capacity to capture large amounts of data they may also use Big Data software.
