5 Things You Can Learn About Analysis from the Intelligence Community

Abstract

Businesses have a large and growing need to analyze data. This is no easy task today with the exploding volumes of data pouring in from everywhere, and the enormous pressure to turn these mountains of data into information that can be acted upon quickly.



It is no surprise that organizations spend over $15B annually on Business Intelligence (BI) and Data Mining technologies. But with all of the focus on infrastructure technologies, there is little emphasis on the… Continue

“MAKING THE DATA TALK” IN TELECOM!

India has a huge mobile revolution and for so many years the game has been only about “acquisition”. We now have quite a few new entrants. Do Co Mo has just launched with its 1 sec pulse strategy which will probably further drive down industry revenues by 10-15 % if others also adopt it. And to top it all one may even see “Number portability” in the near future in the Indian Telecom business.



So the need to “protect revenue” is probably more real than ever before in this… Continue

TO HELL WITH ANALYTICS?

CEOs often talk about the need to use data while taking key decisions. But Marketers still seem to operate more from the gut. Why is that?



Thomas Wailgum in News captures the reasons why the gut still reigns supreme. Here is what he says: “So why is the gut still so in vogue? Of those respondents who said their companies still make decisions based on judgment rather than business analytics, 61 percent said it was because good data was not available, and just over half (55 percent)… Continue

in-database data mining

I have been building data mining solutions within relational databases. Almost every process is done within the database environment. We enjoy the functions provided by databases: security, scalability, analytic functions, manageability, easy model deployment, SQL, etc. Since data mining is done on the server side, the crash of my laptop hard drive has minimum impact on my work (it happened twice in the last two years).

#13: Here's a thought...

An occasional series in which a review of recent posts on SmartData Collective reveals the following nuggets:



Cloudy days ahead


The question is not, will cloud computing happen, but rather, how will this tendency unfold, and how will organizations, regulators, and other actors respond? Until the rhetoric and more important the base of experience moves beyond the current state of pilots and vaporware, the range of potential outcomes is too vast to bet on with any serious… Continue

Thinking macro vs. micro on social media

While I couldn’t think of any good ones off the top of my head, a thought about marketing on social media crossed my mind. The ability to allow your brand to take an occasional hit on the micro level, in order that it will have more success on the macro level, is exactly what companies need to do on social… Continue

An occasional series in which a review of recent posts on SmartData Collective reveals the following nuggets:



First, the decision

The first step is to focus BI and dashboard development on decisions, and this means identifying the decisions that your users must make, the questions to which they need answers, and then focusing on these like a laser. Data quality, data integration, timeliness should all be driven by the decision’s needs. This can be a challenge for… Continue

The future is now

If economic conditions improve in 2010, then the amount saved by releasing an employee may only be $50-100K by the time all the layoff costs are incurred. How can you put a price on replacing the inherent business knowledge of that staff member when you re-hire a replacement? It may take another year or two to get the replacement up-to-speed, and… Continue

An occasional series in which a review of recent posts on SmartData Collective reveals the following nuggets:


Who’s in charge here?
A recent survey of business and IT leaders carried out by Kalido shows that over two thirds of businesses have no clear data governance program, and have no plans to implement one — and 13% are unclear as to what data governance even is. The research also reveals that nobody knows…

Emotions, Beliefs and Analytics

(From lifeanalytics)



When i first came across Data Mining and Machine Learning in 1997 i had no idea of the kind of applications that this field can have. As time passes by, the knowledge that can be available to a data/text miner becomes more and more a serious business....actually, a very serious one.



Not long time ago i have seen a presentation where a map of emotions from the web was created in real time by aggregating… Continue

Data Mining Definition

Having read from great authors and researchers, I had always taken the definition of data mining for granted. Following the tradiitons of Occam's Razor, I tried to summarize one myself but felt the difficulty of covering the entire spectrum of data mining which is ever evolving. Anyways, here is my try...



Data Mining is a process of extraction of non-trivial patterns from massive datasets which either provides descriptive insights of the data (not perceived without this… Continue
