What Do You Want to Do Analytically?

Curt Monash offers a 4-point evaluation guide to answer the question in the title:

There’s no perfect solution to those difficulties, but a good way to start the evaluation is by assessing:

  • The nature and value of your decisions that analytics could reasonably affect.
  • Your realistic scope for automation of analytic decisions.
  • The number and training of your “full-time analysts”“ — statisticians, SQL jocks who can program, SQL jocks who can’t really program, full-time users of BI tools, whatever.
  • The number and training of your “part-time analysts” — normal business users who can get something out of a dashboard, and perhaps even drill down into it.
