Solving Problems with Data

“Analytics” has been a very hot buzzword in recent years; and has led many organizations and professionals to invest heavily in the topic.  But not many have it figured out; in fact, many continue to struggle to see returns on their investments.  This could stem for several factors:

  • Not understanding what analytics is, what it can and cannot do

  • Not having realistic expectations about what analytics can deliver and how it it creates value

  • Not understanding what it takes to succeed with data analytics
