For any organization to grow, data analysis has become the de facto standards of understanding the importance of current problems faced and how to overcome it purely by analysing and interpreting the raw data. Thus, the process of giving a “structure” to the data becomes crucial in informed management decision making.

Data analytics is used in businesses today to help make better decisions. Growing your sales, creating better products, improvising services, understanding customer feedbacks, all requires aspects of analyzing data and provide insights for management to make timely better decisions. Data driven choices reflects true statements from past data and diagnosing it will help steer future outcomes positively.
Using Microsoft Excel for Data Analysis
One of the key tools used in many organizations in analysing data is Microsoft Excel.

Patterns and trend emerging can all be analysed by understanding the power of Excel and presenting it visually using charts which can then be converted into infographics.
