Analytics and Business Intelligence Consortium

There are one hundred billion Google searches undertaken every month. Every hour, Walmart processes a million customer transactions. Across the globe, there are billions of people doing billions of things, all generating data. And in our increasingly digital and interconnected world, the flow of information keeps growing, keeps accelerating.

In manufacturing, health care, insurance, finance, retail and other industries, modern technology has unleashed a torrent of data. You have more information at your fingertips than ever before. But data alone do not equal intelligence. Information alone won’t lead to action. You need a way to engage and manage your data. You need processes and practices that will help you make smarter decisions. You need solutions. The Analytics and Business Intelligence Consortium (ABIC) at the Carroll University School of Business is your solutions partner.
