Becoming an Insight Driven Organization - Realize return on your analytics investment sooner

Published on: Mar 04, 2016

For years, organizations have been investing hundreds of millions of dollars in hardware and software to power their analytics projects. They've organized massive repositories of data, built complex architectures and hired data gurus.

The problem? Approached in isolation, the mere acts of providing data or turning data into insight are academic. They don't deliver a sustainable marketplace advantage. They don't help you compete more effectively in this age of globalization.

The power of analytics is clear. When analytics are implemented successfully, organizations can:

  • gain a deeper understanding of their customers and employees
  • analyze operational performance to drive greater efficiencies
  • mitigate risk by identifying anomalous activity

To derive these tangible benefits, organizations need to consider more than just their data and technology. They need the ability to turn all of the insights from their data into action. This can only happen when organizations align their strategy, adopt the processes and address organizational culture and behaviours that empower their people to generate and rely on their analytic insights to make timely business decisions. These are the building blocks to becoming into an Insight Driven Organization (IDO).
