Contemporary Trends in Business Analytics

In today’s world, managerial decisions are increasingly based on data-driven models and analysis using statistical and optimization methods that have dramatically changed the way businesses operate in most domains including service operations, marketing, transportation, and finance.

The over-arching methodology that refers to the skills and technologies to explore past business performance to make better decisions is called Business Analytics (BA). BA uses data, statistical and quantitative analysis, predictive modeling, and optimization to make businesses work better.

2. Detect patterns using historical data to predict the future trends, and prescript insightful strategies

3. Use the vast information available in the world today to gain insight, create a competitive edge

4. Carry out optimization methods to solve decision problems under uncertainty in business applications

5. Create the right strategy for your firm to gain a competitive advantage over others in your market space, domestically and globally

Most of the topics will be presented in the context of practical business applications, faced by large companies like Google, Intel, Walmart and American Airlines to illustrate its usefulness in practice.
