Standard business analytics can be quite powerful, enabling you to see who did what and also where and when it happened. Advanced methods such as predictive analytics and data mining techniques can lead to a more valuable analysis for multiple reasons, by allowing you to:

1. Discover possible causes and even predictions for the future.
2. Avoid costly mistakes based on natural variability in the business data, a common error among business analysts.
3. Better separate noise in the data from a true signal, guiding you to confident decisions.

If time permits, a brief question and answer session will follow.
