Decision Modeling and CRISP-DM for Modern Data Science Projects

Many data science projects use the popular and well established CRISP-DM methodology. However, CRISP-DM has limitations especially regarding business understanding and deployment. The decision modeling process and the graphical decision requirements diagram addresses these challenges. CRISP-DM Popular, but with Limitations Gregory Piatetsky of KDnuggets writes following the KDnuggets Data Mining Methodology Poll: “CRISP-DM remains the […]

Great New Case Study – Bringing Clarity to Data Science and Analytic Projects

We have been helping several organizations improve their analytic and data science projects. Like many users of analytics, these organizations find that their analytic teams often lack a clear understanding of the business problem, resulting in projects that lose their way or produce analytic  models that don’t get operationalized, deployed or used. We have helped […]

Analytics Teams: Before You Model

Experienced analytics or data science teams know that two key challenges for analytics projects are making sure you solve the real business problem (framing the problem) and making sure you can operationalize the result(deployment).  In this post I am going to talk about framing the problem and I’ll follow-up with another on deployment.

One of the best ways to think about framing is to consider the questions the analytic team should get answers to before they start building a model:

Successful predictive analytic projects follow a well-defined approach from requirements to modeling, implementation and deployment, embedding the analytic results in operational systems that improve business performance. In this live webinar recording, James Taylor, CEO and Principal Consultant […]

New White Paper – Framing Analytic Requirements

The value proposition of predictive analytics is almost always to improve decision-making. Being explicit about the decision-making to be improved is an effective tool for framing analytic requirements. Download our new white paper, Framing Analytic Requirements, to how learn to achieve analytical, data-driven decisions with decision modeling and the Decision Model and Notation (DMN) standard. […]
