General Edit

Analysis is the

(1) Study and examination of something complex by separating it into more simple component. Typically, includes discovering the parts of the thing being studied, how they fit together, and why they are arranged in a particular way. (2) Study of variances for cause, impact, corrective action, and results.[6]

Intelligence Edit

Analysis is

a step in the processing phase of the intelligence cycle in which information is subjected to review in order to identify significant facts for subsequent interpretation.[7]
[t]he process by which collected information is evaluated and integrated with existing information to produce intelligence that describes the current — and attempts to predict the future — impact of the threat, terrain and weather, and civil considerations on operations.[8]

Overview Edit

"Analysis is always done by a human. Analysis requires using thought processes by which collected information is evaluated and integrated with existing information that requires taking multiple pieces of information, thinking through their related connections, and determining a particular conclusion. Computers can assist in analysis, but do not conduct analysis."[9]
