The Four Traps of Predictive Analytics | MIT Sloan Management Review

The Four Traps of Predictive Analytics | MIT Sloan Management Review | Business Intelligence & Analytics | Scoop.it

Digest...

 

The First Trap: Magical Thinking

The truth is, companies must understand what they want before they go analyzing things helter skelter, especially when it comes to making predictions. He points out that there are really only four things businesses can use analytics to predict: risk, opportunity, fraud and demand.

 

The Second Trap: Starting at the Top

Operational decisions, such as those in which companies choose a supplier or determine whether to extend credit, lend themselves well to predictive analytics. So companies need to recognize that predictive analytics works best for prompting decisions about operations, rather than initiating their use

 

The Third Trap: Building Cottages, Not Factories

Focusing on decisions can help companies avoid another path to failure: creating analytic models that don’t scale. Analytics specialists are no more connected to the business than technology specialists, Taylor said; focusing on decisions can help bridge that gap. Otherwise, analytics specialists are prone to create the equivalent of a cottage industry, where the models built apply to only one thing, or are too complex and expensive to be reused easily.

 

The Fourth Trap: Seeking Purified Data

Taylor says good data is useful, of course, but companies should start with the business decision they want to make, and then look for data that might help them predict outcomes. Remember that the needed data may come from outside corporate walls. For many either/or business cases, the data you need might not have to be pristine.

My take: start with low hanging fruit, located in the tactical realm. Gain successes in small chunks, learn, and delve deeper over time.

OpenText Buys Actuate: Beginning of a New Era for ECM?

When content management was introduced in the 1980s, it was cutting-edge, even bleeding edge and promised to transform the ways in which we work and do business. Getting “the right information, to the right people at the right time” was its promise. Much of that its promise has been realized, at least in terms of what we thought of as “information.”But the world, back then, wasn’t digitized the way it is today.
