Here are the top 5 aspects (based on what I have seen) where the means have taken more…See More

Why Data Analytics is Heavy on Data Engineering?

While many companies have embarked on data analytics initiatives, only a few have been successful. Studies have shown that over 70% of data analytics programs fail to realize their full potential and over 80% of the digital transformation initiatives fail. While there are many reasons that affect successful deployment of data analytics, one fundamental reason is lack of good quality data. However, many business enterprises realize this and invest considerable time and effort in data cleansing…See More

Why is Data Missing from the Balance Sheet?

I have been asked many times is data a business asset?. Why is it that an intangible asset like data is not in the company’s balance sheet - a statement of the assets, liabilities, and capital of a business at a particular point in time? Technically, an intangible asset is a non-physical asset that has a multi-period useful life. Examples of intangible business assets are patents, copyrights, customer lists, trademarks, brand names, logo, and data. While data in the recent years has provided…See More

Posted on January 29, 2018 at 9:00pm 4 Comments

On the other hand, interval data hold numerical values on variables such as income, age, and invoice amount and you can do mathematical…
