Analysts need lot of space to store the data.
Analysts always want to save data that can come handy in future. They don't want to destroy valuable data due to lack of space.

Current data which is complete, correct and consistent should be supplied to analysts.
Data analysts must spend all there time in analysing the data so the raw data must be properly documented which complete detail. Data must be given in the form of table with rows and columns and each raw representing one particular transaction.

Proper tool must be provided to Analysts in order to make conclusions.
Analysts need various products in order to work properly. They also need to take care of their asset. Most of the time they have no idea how to take care of those valuable assets. Here Big Data professional can come handy and help them.

For the betterment of the organisation IT professional must work in tandem with Data Analysts and provide them with full support.
