This despite […]

How to frame requirements for predictive analytic projects with decision modeing

One of my big focus areas right now is using decision requirements models to frame predictive analytic projects. We are working with a few insurance companies as well as a couple of manufacturing companies to apply decision requirements modeling in their analytic requirements process and I am excited by the potential. I recently wrote an […]
