A fact that is certainly known to everybody is not an insight. Predictive analytics thrives on the inherent variability in business transactions. This is the reason why analytics has deep roots in probability and statistics. In addition, data mining, pattern recognition and model building help to extract knowledge about the core business process from noisy data. 6 Suggested Further Reading The field of analytics is evolving and the literature is fairly new. Possibly the most prolific educator in this area is Tom Davenport, with several outstanding publications under his belt; see Davenport and Harris (2007), Davenport et al.
R accepts all commands at R prompt (>). The assignation is done by using an arrow (<-). To assign the value of 8 to a variable x and to print out the variable, the following sequence of commands is followed: > x <- 8 > x  8 On the console, simple mathematical operations are done. > y <- 4 > y  4 > x/y  2 > a <- x/y > a  2 The result of a mathematical operation can be displayed on the screen or saved as a variable and accessed later. The result can also be subjected to further operations.
Blind application of software on a large number of records will not necessarily provide insight into the data; rather it is possible that in the mire of information all grains of truth will be inextricably lost. Computational power is to be enjoyed, but not at the cost of foregoing theoretical support. In fact, now that everyone, with or without a proper training in statistics or data analysis, is able to access statistical software, understanding of the basic principles is even more vital. A data analyst does not need to be bothered with the mathematical intricacies.
