Business analysts have a tremendous opportunity to lead business transformation with analytics. To learn more, join me at the Building Business Capability Conference (BBC 2017) in Orlando. I will be speaking on Day 2 of the conference, Thursday, November 9, 2017 at 10:40 am. Here is the abstract:
Analytics have transformative power when they are tightly connected to business value. But in the rush to capitalize on the big data opportunity, companies are investing in data infrastructure and analytics tools without a framework for how these deliver on the business transformation promise.
Focusing data and analytics projects on improving decisions bridges this gap and delivers the business value. The decision modeling requirements technique (BABOK® 10.17) using the open DMN standard provides business analysts with a proven approach to lead and direct transformative data and analytics projects. The session will include examples from real projects in insurance, healthcare, manufacturing and financial services.
- How to foster analytical thinking in data and analytic requirements efforts.
- How to create “pull” for analytics by identifying opportunities for descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics.
- How a focus on improving decisions promotes collaboration between business, IT and analytics teams independent of technology or analytical techniques.
