Consulting/Practice Interests

Analytics is transforming the business landscape. All over the world, companies are using data to plan, invent, evolve, and gain critical insight into their customers, markets, and operations. The hype around analytics is well justified. But, as many businesses soon discover, implementing an analytics initiative in practice is no easy task. Most analytics projects never make it to production. Even companies that manage to engineer a workable product prototype can stumble at the last hurdle and fail to realize the benefit of their analytics investment.
