India is becoming a prime destination in the field of analytics. One trend that has spurred the popularity of this discipline is the availability and wide scale generation of data. Most firms have access to internal data, which they use to understand the market. But today, the internal data of a firm is supplemented by numbers from various other external sources. Some of these are blogs, social media, sensors, image and video sites, etc.

External data sources are really helpful as they provide additional insight into consumer perspectives and market standpoints. Most companies are therefore keeping a tab on these sources to garner additional viewpoint about the market. Companies usually keep track of opinions and views expressed about them in such sources. Also, they make considerable effort to organize, analyze and investigate such data sets. These studies help companies to gain insights, draw conclusions and forecast predictions about market behavior. Hence, increasing number of corporations nowadays show inclination towards understanding techniques like data warehouse and dashboards.

This number translates to about 40% of the total man power needed in the sector. Moreover, this requirement will generate a $20 billion business opportunity in offshore locations. It seems that India is emerging as a favorite destination for such outsourcing activities. Experts are attributing the preference of India over locations like China, Philippines, Eastern Europe and Latin America to its IT competence. Other factors responsible for India’s dominance are industry maturity, vast talent pool and the extensive variety of services offered.
