Analytics Industry

Following is the analysis made Analytics Industry world wide.

The chart above shows that the 90% of the analytics company is from USA and 6 % from U.K. Whereas India covers only 1 % of the total analytic industry.

This shows that Singapore, India and Australia are very low with respect to the western counterpart. China is not even in the category. Overall, US has the majority of the share.

Analytics in itself is not an industry, it can associate itself with any data intensive industry. Lets look at the industries where analytics is applied.

The above table clearly shows that the major players of analytics are related to the Business Services. Then there are Software & Internet, Health care, Consumer Services, Retail and Financial Services. 

Most of the fields like Telecommunication still seems to be unexplored properly. But I assume that with the increase in the telecommunication sector, in near future we might see increasing use of analytics in the those fields too.

Now lets move on to the range of the employees in these analytics industry. The table and the graph shows that the average of employee is around 1 - 100 range. But in some it could increase beyond 100K. This is a great contrast. 
Now lets look at the revenue range of these company. The majority of them have a revenue of around $0-10Millions. The distribution of the employee range and the revenue range seems to be correlated with each other. It might also suggest that for a company to increase their revenue it needs to increase its infrastructure and grow big. 

All these details on the analytics company shows that the industry is growing and that its penetration is still low in the eastern region of the world. Industry wise, there are many sector which still have not employed analytics as the part of their solution. 

Being an analyst and related to analytics field, I would consider the importance of the field is increasing with the rise of information age, where there are millions and millions of data uncovered and unexplored. With so many data floating all around us:

Data for Analyst is  as Gold is to Miners.

I hope above presentation was useful.

Note: The Above analysis is based on the data downloaded from
   The total record was 725.

Good Ad Versus Bad Ad

At InRev , for past few days we have been working on our new project. The project is about collaborative blogging, from the blogger around the world. As Bhupendra and I have been blogging for long time, with his immense experience, our team has been working to revamp the globalthoughtz and create a new blogging experience. In this site, we are planning to add a section where people can add their advertisement. We thought lets start by our own :), with already so many products on the line, it was obvious. So there goes an effort to create a small 128 px by 128 px logo. If you are a designer, you know that designing is a very time consuming process. For hours, you just test around with colors. Remember there are 256 X 256 X 256 combination of colors!! Its hard job selecting one. Lets start with F-Cube : In short F-cube is a Free Economic Reporting Site. Let me exhibit some Ad made for it and its pros and cons. (Please don't click on the image. Wait till the end. Thank You) OK

Passion and Flying

There is an interesting aspect of flying which grasps everyone's imagination. The freedom and the control of moving around the space without any obstacle is just too much to ask for, in one man's life :). Isn't it? As a young kid like everyone, flying was a dream. Not to mention the great stories of Leonardo Da Vinci and the Wrights brothers, who not only dreamt but also went on designing one, would inspire you to believe that some day in future it would be possible to fly like a bird. So let me tell you a short story about myself where I took myself to some limit into achieving this. :) I have been wanting to tell this for a long time but never found any occasion or reason to do so. It was long ago when I was still in grade 3/4, should be around 1993. Space Channel was just installed in our house and I would spend time watching cartoons and other science programs. That was when I noticed gliders and parachutes. The shear simplicity of the design took me by surprise.

Aug 3rd : Meaning Behind It

screen-shots of my diary on August 3rd I live a philosophical life with full concentration on wholeness rather than a single celled ideology. So I have come to see that August 3rd is more important to me than my birthday, cause this is the day when I actually started my journey into the wilderness with full consiousness. It was on August 3 that I started my newly owned life in Bangalore. Remembering my uncertainty at that time, the only thing I was sure about was finding myself. I think I have in many ways found myself in last 3 years. There is this wonderful saying - "You change because you have not found yourself yet". So I am still changing and the process of perfecting continues. It also happens that unknowingly, I tend to take into new journey every August. May be its because of its position in the yearly calender. But beside me, I know that there are hundred of Nepalese students who embark on their educational journey to America, UK and other areas on this very
