And the reason is increasingly evident: the volume andMachine learning while useful has its complexity of what we know has exceeded our individual ability to deliver its benefits correctly, safely, or reliably. “disadvantages.

Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty ofdecision making with business attention, and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among the overabundance ofintelligence and machine learning information sources that might consume it.” - Herbert Simon © Right Brain Systems LLC.
  • 5. What is Analytics? Analytics is the discovery and communication of meaningful patterns in data. These patterns lead to business insights which can be translated into specific actions to drive meaningful business outcomes.2/6/2013 © Right Brain Systems LLC. 5

Digitization & Storage Cloud and Connectivity Computing Capability Pervasive Access + + + Availability of different Easy and inexpensive Ability to quickly Visualize and act anytime, types of data access to any data organize and process a anywhere using mobile lot of data devices• Structured data • Enterprise Data • Linear programming • Provide insights and• Semi-structured data • Federated Data • Regression analysis actions in real-time• Unstructured data • Public/Syndicated Data • Markov chain Monte • Deliver them to the where Carlo methods they can be used • Simulations • Access them from any deviceBusiness Intelligence can answer questions such as: what happened; how many, how often, where did it happen; whereexactly is the problem; what actions are needed.Business analytics answers the questions: why is this happening; what if these trends continue; what will happen next(predict) and what is the best that can happen (optimize).2/6/2013 © Right Brain Systems LLC. 6
  • 7. Today’s market leaders have “cracked the code” Uses advanced analytics to identify and propose the “Next Best Offer” based on Customer browsing and buying patterns Pioneered the use of customer segmentation and profitability analysis to target and acquire most profitable customers Uses web analytics and customer loyalty program data to target and drive business through its most profitable customers Uses Cinematch,an advanced analytics engine to make movie recommendations based on rental patternsSource – Competing on Analytics – The new science ofWinning. – Thomas H.

  • 11. Building an Analytics Driven OrganizationBuilding an analytics driven organization takes more than good technologyThe RBS approach for building an analytics driven Dataorganization focuses on five key domains: Foundation 5 • A data foundation that provides an enterprise view of data, its types, 4 sources, latency and how it is understood and used (metadata) in the 3 organization Information Active Business 2 Design and • An Information Design that describes how users will visualize, access, Sponsorship 1 Visualization 0 utilize and act on the insights generated • Analytics Capabilities which includes the foundational practices, skills and approaches for driving agility into the organization Analytics Analytics • An Analytics Operational Framework that helps establish where and how Operational Capabilities analytics can be used within the enterprise and Framework • Active Business Ownership from Operational leaders within the company who understand and use the insights generated to make informed decisions © Right Brain Systems LLC.
