Predictive Analytics for Retail

whitePaper |

In our daily lives, we are constantly asked to express our preferences. A doctor asks you to rate your pain on a scale of one to ten, an app asks you to rank a restaurant visit from 1 to 5 stars - there are dozens of instances where we’re asked to rate various experiences using arbitrary scales, but these scales lack further differentiation. For instance, how does one restaurant compare to another or how does your pain compare to another patient’s? People naturally think about their own preferences relative to others, naturally causing them to express every preference relatively. For years we have tried to squeeze our varied preference patterns into neat little check boxes. There must be a better way to rate our experiences than stars or points on a scale.

The New B2B: Business Transformation Through Big Data and Analytics

whitePaper | June 28, 2016

What role does Big Data play in today's business transformation efforts? Does the ability to collect, manage, and analyze Big Data make a difference? Does it create differentiation among organizations? These questions are being raised in boardrooms and datacenters by corporate executives, line-of-business managers, and IT leaders. Such questions point to a healthy turn of events in a market that until now has been dominated by hype and inflated expectations and promises. Today, a new, more pragmatic view is taking hold, dominated not by discussions about volume, velocity, and variety of data but by discussions about value — the ability to generate actionable insights and deliver them to all the relevant stakeholders inside and outside the organization. These stakeholders are not only a few executives or a select group of data scientists but all decision makers in different roles who make strategic, operational, or tactical decisions. Only a few of them are analysts, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't and can't benefit from the analysis and insights derived from Big Data.
