Why is it that certain outlets in a chain business can generate more sales than others? Even when they are selling similar products, have similar store sizes, and running similar promotional initiatives?

There are hundreds of different variables to consider; store locations, proximity of competition, local demographics, and so on. In order to understand the reasoning behind certain events, business owners have to be supplied with relevant and real-time data on store performance.

This is where data analytics comes in.
