Data analytics is the science of extracting patterns, trends, and actionable information from large sets of data. While often used interchangeably with the term “business intelligence,” it’s useful to distinguish the terms.

Recent news that endpoint security darling Tanium closed out another $150 million in funding led some investors to value the company at $3.5 billion and defensibly label it as “the world’s hottest cybersecurity startup.”
