This book looks at strategies to help companies become more intelligent, connected, and agile. It discusses how companies can define and measure high-impact outcomes and use effectively analytics technology to achieve them. It also looks at the technology needed to implement the analytics necessary to achieve high-impact outcomes—from both analytics tool and technical infrastructure perspective. Also discussed are ancillary, but critical, topics such as data security and governance that may not traditionally be a part of analytics discussions but are essential in helping companies maintain a secure environment for their analytics and access the quality data they need to gain critical insights and drive better decision-making.

Fifteen years ago, edge companies began to revolutionize their business with advanced analytics. Now those analytics capabilities are table stakes. But the problems analytics were supposed to solve remain: Intelligence is fractured and inconsistent across the enterprise Agility is difficult to achieve while maintaining growth Costs are too high and difficult to control Data value and potential is difficult to unlock New technologies hold new promise, but they are simply more tools in an ever-growing box. They are only as effective as those who wield them. Throughout the author's 20< years of experience in helping companies identify and solve their most intractable problems, he has observed a common theme: those companies that wield analytics tools effectively do not simply deploy analytics solutions. Instead, they embrace a culture of analytics, and they embed analytics throughout their organization, at the cellular level. Analytics becomes pervasive. Thus, this book. It is not prescriptive. There is no methodology, no rubric, or framework. There is no magic solution, no one thing that must be done. Rather, it is a reflection on lessons learned—from successes and failures—on how companies can transform analytics from tools they use, to a philosophy that makes knowledge and analysis pervasive and helps them define who they are now, and who they will become.
