It has been commonly used in different contexts - business, government, politics, and sports to name a few, and has been utilized at various levels. Whether you work with external or internal clients, in industry, government or academia, you will likely be faced with the challenges to realize the tremendous impact of analytics, and especially advanced analytics.
