Finance is becoming a hub of quantitative analysis and data preservation. We are in the era of Big Data where billions of devices are emitting data across the globe every day, to the point where the global supply chain is radically transparent. This flood of unstructured data is made comprehensible by new analytic tools. New predictive modeling applications with user-friendly interfaces enables businesses to integrate data from disparate systems to get better insights into their business. While the new analytic tools are intuitive for data exploration and self-service reporting, statisticians and data scientists are joining finance to help develop hypotheses and interpret data sets for new insights.
