Analytics is Taking over the World (Again) - UKOUG Tech'17

  1. 1. timeline Analytics is Taking Over the World (Again) Mark Rittman, Oracle ACE Director (and Product Manager) UKOUG Tech’17 Conference, Birmingham UK, December 2017 @markrittman
  2. 2. Mark Rittman, Oracle ACE Director ● Oracle ACE Director ● Past UKOUG Oracle Scene Editor ● Author of two books on Oracle BI ● 15+ Years in Oracle BI, DW, ETL + Big Data ● Now Independent Analyst & Product Manager ● Host of Drill to Detail Podcast, including: ○ Paul Sonderegger from Oracle on data capital ○ Timo Elliott from SAP on analytics and innovation ○ Donald Farmer the original PM behind Microsoft OLAP ○ Maxime Beauchemin on Airflow and data engineering ○ Cindi Hewson on Modern BI and *that* Gartner MQ ○ Special UKOUG Tech’17 Episode with Oracle’s Mike Durran About The Presenter
  3. 3. My Career Was Built on Analytics ● Data Warehousing ● Reporting & Dashboards ● OLAP & reporting tools ● Turned that interest into a blog ● Turned that blog into a company ● Consulting, training and advising on analytics ● 20 years to-date
  4. 4. Analytics Changed the World ● The “first coming” of Analyitcs ● Thomas Davenport’s “Competing on Analytics” was the seminal textbook ○ Focus was more on operational efficiency of existing business models ● Analytics for cost-reduction, process optimization ● Analytics for manufacturing, retailing, healthcare ● Used by smart businesses (sometimes) to optimize their operations
  5. 5. “By analytics we mean the extensive use of data, statistical and quantitative analysis, explanatory and predictive models, and fact- based management to drive decisions and actions. Analytics are a subset of what is now known as business intelligence.”
  6. 6. More Recently, I’ve Been Interested in “Big Data” ● Big Data, Hadoop, IoT, Cloud, Spark et al ● Termed “Analytics 2.0” by Thomas Davenport ● New disruptive businesses coming out of this world, driven by analytics and data ● Using internal and externally-sourced data to create new products and services ○ Exploited first by tech-driven ○ with significant first-mover / platform advantages
  7. 7. Then Big Data and Analytics Changed it Again ● Amazon with its logistical engine and ability to move product to where demand is, and where it’s predicted to be ● Netflix with its film recommendations, and commissioning of new films and TV content based on what it knows viewers like ● Uber, a big data tech company who happen to run taxis right now ● and Deliveroo, who now open pop-up restaurant kitchens in places where there’s lots of demand for specific restaurants outside catchment area
  8. 8. “Frank”, Deliveroo’s AI-Powered Dispatch Engine ● Data is used in three ways at Deliveroo ○ Experimentation to understand effect of product changes ○ Supporting general algorithmic decisions ○ To power “Frank”, their AI-powered dispatch engine ■ Constantly recalculating best combination of riders to orders ■ Uses predictions for rider travel time, food preparation time ■ Machine learning algorithms and vast quantities of data to make predictions and decisions about drivers in real-time ■ Then stack orders based on these decisions
  9. 9. How Analytics and Data Power Uber’s Business ● Supply Positioning ○ Stores (big) data for every trip taken ○ Gathers data on drivers’ speed and acceleration ○ Whether driver also works for competitor e.g. Lyft ○ Predict the customer’s wait time ○ Recommends where drivers should place themselves for best fares and most passengers ■ Delivers 5% uplift in revenue of $3.4bn (2016) ■ 97% chance of being picked-up in <10 mins ● Bridging the Gap Between Demand and Supply ○ A/B testing, Clustering ● Management interviewees screened with analytics test ○ Basic Excel knowledge, stats and probability ○ Knowledge of key metrics, scenario analysis
  10. 10. Disrupting via Data, Analytics and Platforms ● Google, Airbnb, Ebay and other platforms ● Multi-sided markets where winner-takes-all ○ Aggregation Theory (Stratechery) ● Leverage data and analytics at-scale ● Using data as a form of economic capital ○ Data Capital Theory (MIT Technology Review) ○ Principle #1: Data Comes from Activity ○ Principle #2: Data Tends to Make More Data ○ Principle #3: Platforms Tend to Win
  11. 11. And I’ve Also Been Interested By Startups ● The culture ● New channels for delivery, new markets being served ● And because they're typically built around product ○ Because they're typically VC-funded ○ All about getting 10x return on the winners ■ (1/3 1/3 1/3 strategy for early-stage investors) ● I worked for a while at Gluent with Tanel Poder & Paul Bridger ○ Product Marketing and maker of bacon sandwiches ● And then I joined Qubit, a MarTech startup as Analytics PM ○ And so I entered a parallel world ■ The world of eCommerce and marketing analytics ■ Personalization and *real* big data analytics ■ (and startup SaaS vendors)
  12. 12. eCommerce and Marketing *live* by Analytics ● In our Oracle world of ERP, Manufacturing we think we do analytics, but a lot of it is really reporting ○ BI Apps, Reports and ApEx, Dashboarding apps such as OBIEE ● But in the eCommerce world, analytics are everywhere ○ Measuring the uplift from a campaign ○ Dividing customers into segments, and measuring and working to improve the value of that customer segment ○ Ability to electronically define an offer, a new store, a new business line, track its effectiveness and quickly pivot to a new offer if needed
  13. 13. But it was like a parallel universe ● Instead of GL and Inventory, we have Conversions and Merchandising ● Instead of saying most BI projects fail because they don't solve a business problem, they say most analytics projects fail because of not being actionable ● And the de-facto standard analytics tool in this world is .... Google Analytics ○ Which we think is just graphs of visitors and page views ○ But it actually a world of segments, metrics, goals, attribution and A/B testing ■ Quickly spot opportunities and present actionable information. ■ With credit assigned to every touchpoint in the customer journey, ■ Get granular in your analysis and create highly accurate models ■ Google Analytics 360 Suite – Google (link)
  14. 14. CRO, A/B Testing, Attribution and Uplift ● It's all about stats and conversion optimization ○ Try everything once, see what works ○ Very stats and probability-heavy ○ Attribution ○ Drives a whole industry ■ CRO ■ Monetate ■ Optimizely ○ Everything is measured, statistically modelled, revenue tracked and digital ■ Typically drives ~ 1% - 3% uplift
  15. 15. SaaS Businesses Have Data and Analytics in DNA ● These new SaaS business define and drive themselves through analytics ○ Churn ○ Metrics and Geckoboard ○ Metabase ○ Product analytics ● Analytics vendors you’ve never heard of serve these high-growth SaaS businesses ○ Mixpanel ○ Amplitude Analytics ● Part of a wider move towards what Thomas Davenport calls Analytics 3.0—the era of data-enriched offerings.
  16. 16. Discovering New Music in the Past (Or Not)
  17. 17. Discovering New Music Today
  18. 18. Data + Analytics Disrupting Existing Industries ● Spotify replaced the local HMV through data, analytics and personalization ○ Data: Powerful By-product of Streaming Music ○ Every user gets a personalized playlist every week ○ Music that they have not heard before on the service, but that will be something the listener is expected to enjoy ■ Discovery without the record store snobbery ○ Spotify for Artists app ■ Democratization of audience insight
  19. 19. 2 Years Ago at Tech’15 - Marketing Data Lake Concept ● Two years ago at UKOUG Tech’15 I talked about data reservoirs and Customer 360 analysis ○ Use of big data, analytics and ML to enable 1:1 marketing and personalization
