What is Analytics?

Analytics is defined as the scientific process of transforming data into insight for making better decisions.

Our members help organizations like yours every day to use analytics to improve processes, save costs, and enhance revenues.

Whatever your business need in analytics – from wanting to know what it is and how you might use it to improve your organizational goals to applying it to a specific business problem you already have – INFORMS has the professionals and programs to help you.
