What is ArcGIS Business Analyst and how will it help my organization?
ArcGIS Business Analyst helps you make smarter decisions for market planning, site selection, and customer outreach by combining demographic, business, lifestyle, spending, and census data with map-based analytics. From prominent retail chains to hospitals and consulting firms, ArcGIS Business Analyst helps organizations understand consumers and clients, and see opportunities clearly within any industry.
Many organizations’ questions start with “Where?” and with ArcGIS Business Analyst, the answers become well-defined and actionable. You can analyze, visualize, and predict market trends, geographic patterns, and hidden connections in the data. ArcGIS Business Analyst is designed for small / mid businesses as well as enterprise deployments alike. It’s the perfect location-based analytical tool to help you make the smartest decision, no matter what field you are in.
