  • Insurance - an insurer offering flood-loss coverage could improve the otherwise manual and labor-intensive process of physically comparing a potential customer’s address to existing flood zone maps to determine the eligibility and premiums of such a policy. This manual decision-making process is labor-intensive, involves a significant time cost (averaging two to four days), and is prone to error, both through the location of customer properties and through the use of infrequently updated maps.

    8. 8. Why do Location Analysis?<br />Location information in decision-making:<br />
    9. 9. Why do Location Analysis?<br />Business data becomes valuable when collected & analyzed in relation to other internal or external data, eg, match your sales / service distribution outlet revenue info with<br /><ul><li> Demographics info like population density
    10. 10. Product mix vs customer needs / segments, egaffluency</li></ul> in a particular location<br /><ul><li> Competitive info, eg competitors network of outlets
    11. 11. Traffic patterns within the area, easy access
    12. 12. Service outlets, real-time deployment of service engineers</li></ul>Combine multiple location-inherent data with geographic information for better detection of patterns and trends, and turn these into actionable insights<br />
    13. 13. Why do Location Analysis?<br />“Gartner recognises GIS as a major maturing technology with a value and benefits profile<br />similar to that of BI, and expects interactive visualisation to become the common front<br />end to analytical applications over the next couple of. By linking location to corporate information, organisations can use location intelligence to make better decisions, enhance planning capabilities, and achieve real business benefits”<br />“The evolution of information technology has matured rapidly to support the use of "location intelligence" for making effective business decisions. When combined with embedded automated decision applications, location intelligence can lead to the execution of precise customer decision strategies and a new level of enterprise performance.”<br />Ventana Research 2009<br />Gartner Summit 2008<br />“Companies are already sitting on a gold mine of location information that can be exploited right now. Location content can be leveraged to deliver key business value; whether it's lowering costs, managing risk or developing new revenue streams. And the reality is, location data is already sitting latent inside most organizations. All they need is the right expertise to unlock its potential and get better results.”<br />“Location intelligence (LI) is poised to make its play in the enterprise. LI is finally making make inroads in corporate decision-making circles”<br />Ovum Oct 2008<br />“Many are now looking to capitalise on location data in their BI to better leverage the where in operational and strategic decision making. LI can make BI sizzle.”<br />DMTI May 2009<br />Ovum May 2009<br />

    31. 31. Steps to Location Intelligence<br />What sources of info must LI tap<br />Start with the basics<br />What location Info can enhance knowledge of products & services, and improve your encounters with your customers<br />Utilize multiple data sets, eg sales by territory, number of salesmen within the territory, the number of distribution trucks, etc.<br />Take advantage of already existing data in your data warehouse / BI<br />Ventana Research<br />
    32. 32. Steps to Location Intelligence<br />Enhance business data with demographics dimension, GIS and maps<br />External demographics info is also insightful<br />Eg in retail, you should look at the population demographics of the site targeted, the network of roads / buses / trains from your customers leading to your outlet, etc<br />In retail estate, you should look at the proximity of surrounding facilities, is there convenient transport, supermarkets, banks, schools<br />Integrate spatial information with business information<br />A single, synchronized view of your data, provides 360-degree view of information<br />Single View of Your Data<br />
    33. 33. Steps to Location Intelligence<br />Visualize on a map<br />Easier to detect patterns and trends in a map than traditional row and column spreadsheets<br />Drive the map from the business data / report (BI)<br />Drive the BI from the map<br />Leverage on Location Intelligence tools to gather insights<br /><ul><li>Color-coding
