Are you confused as to what analytics tools actually are and how they can be applied to support human capital centric efforts such as HR innovation and workforce benchmarking? If so, you are in the right place. A recent article written by Bernard Marr for LinkedIn titled “What the hell is analytics?” explains what the “analytics” buzzword actually means.
“Basically, analytics refers to our ability to collect and use data to generate insights that inform fact-based decision-making. Advances in information technology and a complete datafication of our world now mean we have (or will have very soon) data and insights on everything,” Marr says. Analytics can be used in sports, business, healthcare, even in finding “the One.”
In today’s data-driven world, nothing is private. Everything is tracked one way or another. In the recent news about NSA leaker, Edward Snowden, Americans are upset about the surveillance methods the government uses to track terrorism. When in reality, everything we do is being tracked. Every email, every Facebook and Twitter update, even the shows we watch and how long we watch them.
