DeloitteAbout Deloitte's Analytics Approach
An organisation's data is full of potential. Stored throughout the business, it has a wealth of possibilities. Leading businesses recognise 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 maximise the value of their data. By looking at an organisation from the inside out we can turn everyday information into useful and actionable insights.
