The world’s best companies have been turning to Deloitte for decades for trusted advice in addressing key business challenges, whatever they happen to be.
In that time, technological advances such as electronic spreadsheets and smartphones have revolutionised the manner in which we deliver professional services to our clients. Additionally, innovation has come not just from new tools but also from new processes like six sigma and just-in-time inventory management.
Data analysis, as a discipline, has been around for centuries, but we are living through an era in which the sheer quantity and diversity of data being generated every month, every day, every minute, presents businesses with completely new challenges and opportunities.
Analytics is a broad category encompassing a variety of hardware and software tools that businesses use to manage and analyse data for the purposes of generating previously unimaginable levels of insight. More importantly, analytics is also about the people with specialised skills and training who use those tools to achieve insight.
Too often, businesses over-invest in analytics hardware and software that they do not actually need or worse, do not know how to use. At Deloitte Analytics, we are the professionals you call when you find yourself in that situation – or better yet, when you want to avoid it.
Analytics can mean different things to different people, but at Deloitte, we view data-driven analytics as simply a new and improved means to a traditional end: we aim to be your most trusted business adviser in addressing your company’s most important challenges.
