A few months ago, I shared some of the findings from a recent Accenture SAS Analytics Group research showing that intuition trumps analytics among 258 business professionals. The main reason? Lack of confidence in the data. I then came across a few short webcasts that dig into that research a bit more, citing analytics challenges for executives such as data quality, access and security and the continued distance between the business and IT sides of the business. The units just don’t speak the same language and that gives way to a myriad of obstacles.
So next time you’re munching on a sandwich at your desk, watch any of the three 15-minute webcasts geared to the business manager, executive and IT leader for more perspective on these challenges and ways to overcome them.
