What is analytics? A quick dip in the pool.

I came across this great visualisation that introduces basic concepts in analytics and the differences between Big Data and predictive analytics. I found this to be a good summary for the busy senior executive who wants to understand what analytics is all about.

Most certainly there is so much more to analytics than just this summary – but its a good dip in the water! 🙂
