DeloitteAbout Deloitte's Analytics Approach
An organization's data is full of potential. Stored throughout the business, it has a wealth of possibilities. Leading businesses recognize that a better understanding of data (particularly as a predictor of the future or as an identifier of existing issues) can create new opportunities and make a significant difference to managing performance. Analytics is, in our opinion, the natural evolution of business intelligence processes, tools and technologies. While business intelligence focuses on historical analysis, analytics builds upon this set of technologies and techniques to re-focus on the future; helping predict future trends, opportunities and threats.

Deloitte's deep industry expertise and advanced analytics capability can help decision-makers to maximize the value of their data. By looking at an organization from the inside out we can turn everyday information into useful and actionable insights. Deloitte is one of the world's leading professional services firms, providing audit, tax, consulting, and financial advisory to public and private clients spanning multiple industries. With a globally connected network of member firms in more than 140 countries, we bring world-class capabilities and deep local expertise to help clients succeed wherever they operate. Our 170,000 professionals are committed to becoming the standard of excellence.
