There is no dearth of data, but only a limited amount of information is being extracted, from which it is not possible to gain maximum knowledge. A vast majority of businesses are still sitting on a pile of expensive data but are making little use of it and running the business on gut feeling. So what really is analytics? Without going into any technicalities, analytics may be defined as an intelligent process of converting collected data and information into knowledge for improved decision making.

Possibly for the first time in the history of data-driven applications, the problem centers around availability of too much data, making elimination of noise from the signal extremely difficult. The second difference is in the solution approach to an industrial problem. Previously, the statistical approach was less focused in that, in the absence of a precise statistical solution, an approximate method would have been acceptable. But not any more! With the advent of very high computational power and development in computational theory, if a theoretical approach is not tractable for a particular problem, computational approaches, including those related to machine learning or other computer science techniques, are adopted until a solution with an acceptably high accuracy for the business problem is found.
