So many business decisions are driven by "where." Where should I locate my new store, warehouse, or office? Where is my competition? Where do my target customers live? Where should I offer premium vs. standard services?
Esri Business Analyst is a complete system for analyzing data to reveal insights and patterns in your business. You can perform deep analysis of demographic and consumer data and combine it with your own data to gain greater understanding of your customers, competition, market, and trends. Business Analyst can be configured to share data, analyses, and insights throughout your entire organization.
