While large data sets may provide significant value in certain cases, data diversity and integrating smart data points will provide more consistent actionable insights and high value intelligence leading to better decision-making.

I’ve been thinking a lot about data, where it comes from, and what it looks like. I can’t help it. I’ve been a data geek for almost 15 years. And I find data beautiful. Not necessarily in its raw form, mind you. Then it’s just messy and more often than not a pain to deal with, especially when it gets really, really big. But when smart, creative people start to clean it up and use it in different ways to find the hidden stories that make sense, it can help us learn things in ways that we…Continue

From episode 10 of my Naked Analyst Channel on YouTube.
I think I do - and it is the ‘appification’ of analytics. What I mean by this is the reduction of a complex analytic activity such as market segmentation, down to a single button on your computer interface. Very much like the…Continue

Big data has big impact on businesses, governments, and societies, and its impact is continuously growing. And it gets even bigger than that.

As we move to a more…Continue
