Great Analytics Demands Great Data

The pace of business is getting faster. This means we have to make more decisions in the same amount of time. Thus, the pace at which we can develop and deliver analytics needs to increase.

The speed at which an analytics project can be executed is dependent on the speed at which the data to support it can be assembled.  Additionally, the effectiveness of the project depends on assembling the "right" data.

Many analytics projects languish or fail because of the lack of that underlying data support. Creating a reusable data infrastructure that combines both structured and unstructured data to support cross-functional analytics is key to achieving success.  But what should this look like?

Establishing a reliable roadmap

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.
