January 28th, Day 2

9:40 AM Turning Analytics from Internal to External by Utilizing Analytics as a Client/Customer Service

A recent (and in some ways not so recent) trend is to transform a core capability around analytics into an Analytical Service that can be sold or provided to a customer.  One hears about A/B Testing capability that can now be purchased; Monte Carlo financial modeling can now be used by an investor to understand the risk and reward of a portfolio; consulting services seem to be popping up every other day. We can all name our favorites.  Data quality, laws, regulations, and organizational structures can all impact our ability to develop and launch this type of service.  In this session, we will walk through some experiences and drive a discussion on what we’ve learned and potential ways to extract further value.
