    The main advantage of this analytics is that there is no need of having a perfect technical knowledge to get into analytics, just a basic technical knowledge is enough to understand and run the softwares required to perform analysis. Being from a non technical background one does not require hardcore technical knowledge about the softwares because when one enters this course he/she gets acquainted with the basic technical knowledge. With this course I see myself working with top notch companies like IBM, Cognizant, WIPRO, TCS, etc. which will add stars to my career.
