In spite of the promise of business analytics – and new technologies that make analytic power more accessible than ever – few organizations have taken full advantage. They have questions about where to focus their efforts, how to address data management issues, and what types of analytic techniques to use where. That was the topic of a SAS-sponsored webinar in the "Applying Business Analytics" series, in which participants offered practical advice about how to make analytics pervasive in the organization, predictive for maximum value, and proactive to drive meaningful action. This paper provides a summary of that webinar.
