4 years back, what started as a vision to evangelize analytics in India has since translated into a passionate platform for everything analytics in India, from keeping readers posted on latest developments to celebrating the Indian analytics ecosystem through events such as the Analytics India Summit – Cypher.
In a short span of four years, we have become one of the most reputed brands online in our field and it couldn’t have been possible without our readers. Ranging from comments and queries to interactions on our social media pages as well as the comments section, you have showered us with immense support and as we celebrate our 4th birthday today, we extend our gratitude to you.
Now, as is the (unsaid) ritual on anniversaries, let’s take a walk down the memory lane and see how we have grown. Analytics India Magazine started with a vision to highlight the development and potential of the Indian Analytics community on a global level. Over time, it became a platform that showcased not only the in’s’ and out’s but also the giants of the industry. Through various interviews, articles, reports and case studies, it became a source of referral and inspiration for many to pursue a career in analytics.
We have evolved into a portal that is no longer limited to analytics but also focuses on developments in the sister domains such as the Internet of Things, Business Intelligence, Artificial Intelligence, and those from the Indian government on the analytics aspects too. In the last few years, Analytics India Jobs and Data Science Cult have also become an integral part of the AIM website for those looking for jobs or trying to locate an analytics organisation. Thus, we have become an anchor point for startups, students, vendors and service providers in the analytics industry.
Most importantly though, we are a magazine driven by our readers, so keep us posted on your likes, dislikes, give us suggestions, ask us questions and we will do our best to meet your needs, as we have been doing till date!
