Beschreibungen

Mohan and Oliver have been very fortunate to have intimate views into the data challenges that face the largest organizations and institutions across every possible industry—and what they have been hearing about for some time is how the business needs to use data and analytics to their advantage. They continually hear the same issues, such as: We're spending valuable meeting time wondering why everyone's data doesn't match up. We can't leverage our economies of scale while remaining agile with data. We need self-serve apps that let the enterprise experiment with data and accelerate the development process. We need to get on a more predictive curve to ensure long-term success. To really address the data concerns of today's enterprise, they wanted to find a way to help enterprises achieve the success they seek. Not as a prescriptive process—but a methodology to become agile and leverage data and analytics to drive a competitive advantage. You know, it's amazing what can happen when two people with very different perspectives get together to solve a big problem. This evolutionary guide resulted from the a-ha moment between these two influencers at the top of their fields—one, an academic researcher and consultant, and the other, a longtime analytics practitioner and chief product officer at Teradata. Together, they created a powerful framework every type of business can use to connect analytic power, business practices, and human dynamics in ways that can transform what is currently possible.

A NEW MODEL FOR ANALYTIC CAPABILITY, MATURITY, AND AGILITY AT SCALE The Sentient Enterprise summarizes the achievement of "sentience" that an analytics journey should lead companies toward. It's not meant to represent an actual destination. The Sentient Enterprise is more of a North Star that every large business should aspire to be, as it struggles to make decisions at the speed of data. However, Mohan and Oliver did determine that a Sentient Enterprise must have five foundational qualities. It must be: Proactive and able to sense micro-trends signaling the next opportunity or alerting the next crisis Frictionless because it can act as a single organism without any impedance or bottlenecks Autonomous to listen to data and make decisions in real time without much human intervention Scalable to any size company and able to leverage unlimited data for making decisions Evolving through intelligence that is native and emergent In order to get there, any enterprise has to go on a journey. The Sentient Enterprise journey is the way your company will get there. This methodology is disrupting entire industries and changing the very nature – the very identity – of large companies across nearly all sectors of our economy. It is a journey every big company should take if they seek to understand how data can help them become even better in order to survive and compete in today's data-driven marketplace. It will change the way everyone in business makes decisions – from small, tactical ones to mission-critical ones – by continuously decomposing problems into manageable components. But it is a journey only a few brave ones have started because it is as long-term and complex as it is realistic and valuable. But make no mistake about it – it's an ongoing journey. There is no finish line. This is not for the meek or faint of heart. It's for the early adopters among you who want to get ahead of the competition or for the followers among you to ensure your survival. And for the unconcerned? Hmm… well… odds are you will lose out to your competitors who are already building architectures and strategies to lead the way. Mohan and Oliver believe you can be the pioneers of your organizations. You want to take your company in the direction it needs to go to survive, lead, and disrupt in this changing, data-intensive world. This book will inspire you by getting you to think about how this model can bring you competitive advantage and not just ideas about data innovation. Success is possible if you embrace the changes and methods needed to fully leverage big data analytics for your businesses.
