Why the ‘8’ in ‘Analytics8’?
We’re often asked why Analytics8 is called ‘Analytics8’. The ‘Analytics’ bit makes sense, but what about the ‘8’?
8 is the luckiest number in Chinese culture because 八 sounds like 發 (fa), which means “wealth”, “fortune”, and “prosper” in Chinese. Multiples of eight are even better: In the Beijing summer Olympics, the opening ceremony began at 8:08 pm on 08/08/08. Double eight is even better still, as ’88’ bears a resemblance to 囍 (shuāng xǐ), or ‘double happiness’.
In our original logo there was a reference to two eights (the 八 symbol and the 8). For us, the ‘8’ in ‘Analytics8’ signifies the desire to achieve (double) prosperity through data and analytics, for our customers, and for Analytics8 as a company.
