In today’s digitised dynamic business environment, a CEO’s constant worry is to find suitable skilled employees who can help businesses succeed. This ever soaring dearth of suitably skilled workforce and the ever more critical need of businesses for right talent were recognised by a group of talented people. This was further fuelled when they had come across a group of few students who were highly dissatisfied with their analytics training.This incident was the seed which later bloomed into the idea of AnalytixLabs in June, 2011. Being passionate about analytics, the foundersplanned a more practical and job-oriented pedagogy through real businessissues that they had experienced during their career.
The initial days at AnalytixLabswere challenging, more so because of the block to connect and gain the faith of both the organizations and students alike and make them understand the value analytics could have created. Soon, the company began spending more time in guiding future professionals on what they should be expecting and what it means for their unique candidature.Since then, there was no looking back.
