White paper: An Analytic Platform Blueprint
The growth of available data across industries and the growing demand to analyze it has been well documented. The most competitive enterprises are those that learn to harness data, put analytics to use, and operationalize the data to have widespread impact to their organization.
The most important benefit of a mature platform for operational analytics is support of rapid time to value. This value comes from reducing the barriers that limit an organization’s ability to take analytic intelligence and implement it into business operations for the organization’s benefit.
The viewpoint paper “An Analytic Platform Blueprint” describes the core functional capabilities of an analytic platform and is designed to help enterprises assess the current state of their analytic platform software and consider the impact of any potential gaps.
Exploit the Power of Analytics
A comprehensive analytic platform provides a framework for discovery, exploration, strategy, planning and decision making. It includes capabilities for everything that’s important to consider: provisioning data; storing, distributing and processing data; analyzing data; delivering information; embedding analytics; managing information and more.
For example, you may want to capture and analyze the vast amounts of social media texts — unstructured data — flowing between consumers and a particular business unit or product division to drive continuous improvement in a business process. You might want to integrate multiple social media sources to analyze how a new product influenced overall consumer perceptions about a particular brand.
