Data Analytics is more technical centric than the other in terms of technical skillset as a data analyst would be doing hands-on data cleaning, data purging, finding correlations etc. A data analyst would love to dirty his hands on any of the latest tools out there and test his/her data on the tool and see what insights he/she can draw from it.
Business analytics, on the other hand, is a kind of more process-oriented / functional role where a business analyst would be looking into the day to day operations of the company. A CEO/CMO won’t understand what correlation is or what variables are really having a weight on the transform function, hence a business analyst. A business analyst should be able to interpret the data analyst terminologies and transom them to be presentable to their respective heads. A business analyst would also look into optimizing and would also be the one to call the shorts for upgrading/optimizing any models in the company/campaign.
Requirement elicitation is the process of collecting information from stakeholders. It serves as a foundation in documenting the requirements for application development.
There are a number of elicitation techniques to gather requirements or to collect the information from the stakeholders. Some of the requirement elicitation techniques are as follows.
- Document analysis
- JAD (Joint Application Development)
- Reverse engineering
The basic principle of quantum computation is that the quantum properties can be used to represent and structure data, and that quantum mechanisms can be devised and built to perform operations with this data.
DRASTIC DROP IN GREENHOUSE GASES

Global CO2 Emissions Saw Record Drop during Pandemic Lockdown
The wave of shutdowns and shuttered economies caused by the coronavirus pandemic fueled a momentous decline in global greenhouse gas emissions.
As infections surged in March and April, nations worldwide experienced an abrupt reduction in driving, flying and industrial output, leading to a startling decline of more than 1 billion tons of carbon dioxide emissions. That includes a peak drop in daily emissions of 17 percent in early April. For some nations, the falloff was much steeper.
At first glance, a reduction of that magnitude appears massive. In comparison, global emissions dropped 1.5% during the Great Recession in 2009.
But a deeper look shows that individual changes in behavior produce limited emission reductions. Much of the world stopped traveling, eating in restaurants and buying merchandise. It was an unmatched experiment and yet 80% of emissions were untouched.
Even an emissions drop of that scale would fall short of the 7.6% annual reductions the United Nations has said are necessary over the next decade to hold the global temperature rise to below 1.5 degrees Celsius. Continue reading
System On Chip (SoC)
A system-on-chip (SoC) is the integration of functions necessary to implement an electronic system onto a single substrate and contains at least one processor. The only real difference between an SoC and a microcontroller is one of scale.
An SoC contains multiple processing parts, memory, modems, and other essential bits and pieces manufactured together in a single chip that’s soldered onto the circuit board.
Dos and Don’t of Backyard Composting
Starting a compost bin is one of the easiest ways to reduce your household’s waste and create nutrient rich soil that can be used throughout your garden. With so many different options and styles of compost bins available these days, the best part is that a compost bin no longer has to be an eyesore in your garden and can easily tie in with your landscaping design.

An overview of Vector Graphics
Vector graphics, consist of paths defined by a start and endpoint. These paths can be anything from a line to a series of lines that create a shape like a square or a circle. Despite the simplistic nature of a vector’s building block, paths are used to create extremely complex diagrams. Each path object carries its own mathematical statement that defines how the object should be displayed.
What Is an SVG File?
A file with the SVG file extension is most likely a Scalable Vector Graphics file. Files in this format use an XML-based text format to describe how the image should appear.
Since text is used to describe the graphic, an SVG file can be scaled to different sizes without losing quality—in other words, the format is resolution-independent. This is why website and print graphics are often built in the SVG format, so they can be resized to fit different designs in the future.
Podzolization encompasses the downward migration of Al and Fe, together with organic matter, from the surface areas and their accumulation in the profile’s deep areas.
This process is characterised by a strong acidity that causes the slow development of organic matter (which releases abundant organic compounds with an acidic nature) and an extreme alteration of the mineral phase (releasing abundant elements that are lixiviated by the drainage waters, while the medium is enriched with insoluble elements, such as Fe and Al, which are migrated downward by the organic compounds towards deeper horizons). In short, an eluvial horizon is formed on the surface with intense substance losses.
A process of soil formation, esp. in cool, humid regions, in which the upper layers are leached of iron, lime, and alumina, which are then concentrated in underlying layers.
The evidence that the podzolization process has developed in a soil is reflected in the profile’s spectacular micromorphology, with abundant coverings of organic matter on the sand grains in horizon Bh.
