Building the analytics refinery: components and resources

Building an analytics function requires several parts and resources, just like an oil refinery needs a particular set of equipment and knowledge. Below is a summary of the key components:

• Mechanical Resources: These are the resources that support the gathering, storing, and processing of data. It includes cloud storage options, business intelligence (BI) tools that facilitate data analysis and visualization, and data warehouses.


• Technical Resources: The foundation of any effective analytics operation is a team of knowledgeable experts.

To extract insights from data, you need data scientists, data analysts, data engineers, and business intelligence specialists with experience in data mining, modelling, and data visualization.
