Predictive analytics uses a mix of machine learning, statistical algorithms and historical data to predict outcomes. A myriad of companies worldwide uses it to predict risk, assess markets, predict outcomes, and much more.
Simply put, e-Commerce is the buying or selling of goods and services over the internet. With e-Commerce, the entire transaction from purchasing a product to when it leaves the seller or the warehouse is online. e-Commerce means that all money is traded online, as is the collection of data around the transaction.
React is a library. A library is something that allows developers to share code they have written that solves everyday problems. React prevents everyone from having to reinvent the wheel every time they knock across the same problem. It also means if someone comes up with a clever way of doing something, they can make it available to everyone else. That is exactly what Facebook did. They wanted to build a richer and more responsive user experience. So they built this super-fast and super-easy library to build great user interfaces and shared it with everyone.
It cuts down development time for everyone, improves quality and means you can do exciting things quickly. As a result, it’s one of the most popular development libraries in the world. Apart from Facebook, it is also used by Instagram, the BBC, The New York Times, Pay Pal, and of course Code Institute!
There is a massive demand for software developers who possess e-Commerce skills. This is more true now than ever before. For example, in 2020, Amazon employed a further 500,000 employees. In the USA alone, $791 billion was spent online during COVID-19. In Europe, online sales saw a 26% increase compared to the previous year and amounted to a whopping €480 billion.
Companies are now preparing for the future, and the expectation is that both companies and consumers will continue to adapt to online purchasing. For this reason, there is a massive demand for software developers who understand e-Commerce and the technologies that can drive it forward.
As so many companies are now using artificial intelligence and collecting data, they are now figuring out how best to use their stored information. Predictive analytics allows companies to use their data to predict future outcomes. Therefore, predictive analytics can increase its bottom line by predicting what will happen based on its collected data.
Predictive analytics is now used in pretty much all industries, which is why these skills are in such huge demand.
In a word? Yes. Thousands of companies worldwide use React.js because it allows them to build web applications faster and smarter.
