Researchers and practitioners extend this line of research constantly by producing journals, posts, news articles and podcasts. However, there is a paucity of a book that covers descriptive, diagnostic, predictive and prescriptive methodbased research papers under one umbrella. This is one of those books which will immerse a reader in the past, present and future of big data analytics methods. It is an exceptional book that is grounded in evidence and meaningful to practice.’ – Yogesh K.
