Data analytics aren’t just for global enterprises. This SlideShare outlines 7 useful tools that are suitable for analysing business data

Until recently, data tools for making sense of your business data needed specialist IT skills to use them. But that’s changing.

Today’s tools – many of them available at low cost over the web or even free of charge – are capable of sifting large volumes of unstructured data, seeing the relationships within it, and giving you insights into how your business is really performing. This puts every business in a position to make smarter decisions based on tangible evidence.

While the 7 tools we feature all have different capabilities, what they all have in common is that they can add confidence to your decision-making.

Let’s see what data analytics can do for your business.

As you can see, data analytics isn’t just for big corporations. (Or nerds in ivory towers.) There are tools out there that are completely business-focused and can transform your decision-making.

There are now data analytics tools that can be used by anyone who needs to support a decision or guide their business understanding. Finance people, sales and marketers, operations execs – everyone.

And with so many SMEs making those decisions based on gut instinct alone, intelligent use of data can be your secret weapon.


  • Data analytics business technology isn’t just for large corporations with specialist IT skillsets.
  • Complex datasets aren’t always complex to analyse.
  • Different data analytics tools have very different strengths.
