For those of you, who are wondering what is “Analytics Buddhu”, “Analytics” can be defined as the science of extracting insights from raw data. The spectrum of analytics starts from capturing data and evolves into using insights / trends from this data to make informed decisions. On the other hand, In English “Buddhu” meaning is “fool” or “idiot”.  “Buddhu” is a slang hindi word and nothing more than that.

Through this blog, I want to create a passionate community, which dedicates itself in study of Analytics. I share my learning and tips on Analytics through this blog.

Why study Analytics?

I study Analytics because Analytics is my passion.

With growing data and complexity, data analytics will become a competitive advantage for companies doing it well. Have you ever wondered how social networking sites like Facebook and LinkedIn can suggest you friends in near time? How can Google use its search query data to identify areas under pandemic influence? How can a grocery store predict pregnancy of its customer even before it was known to her family?

All of these are examples of analytics at work in real time. And this is just the start. With increasing usage of mobile devices and digitization across the globe, advantages of investing in cutting edge analytics are unlimited.

According to Harvard Business Review (October 2012 edition), job of a data scientist is the sexiest job of 21st century.

While the need for analytics experts is clear, the shortage is shocking!

According to the McKinsey Global Institute (In a May 2011 report): “By 2018, the United States alone could face a shortage of 140,000 to 190,000 people with deep analytical skills as well as 1.5 million managers and analysts with the know-how to use the analysis of big data to make effective decisions.” Imagine what would be the number across the globe…
