That's actually a good point. Perhaps "analytics" should be somewhere on the Stata home page to attract those looking for analytics tools and green or black belts in six sigma. Hiiiyah!

It is a word made up by the business community. I don't particularly
like it but as long as my customers do I won't argue. And if you don't
like it either and you don't see it on the Stata list, that is a good
thing only in an aesthetic sense; it may also be a sign that Stata and
the business community ignore each other. That, I think, would be a
pity. Judging by the upbeat tone of their junk mail, SAS is
increasingly popular with the private sector and is making a very nice
living off the "business intelligence" market. So do scores of SAS
programmers. If I am right that Stata is better than SAS for pretty
much everything that the business community uses SAS for, then we all
(producers of things, their consumers, and us Stata programmers) would
be better off if Stata were at least under consideration.

Where did this word come from? It strikes me as one of those words
that is made up by the business community. Was it? Or was it made up
by statisticians? Wikipedia and Wiktionary are not satisfying in their
explanation. The term permeates SAS and SPSS sites pages, but not
Stata pages. I think that's a good thing.
