The Old Strategy Has to Change

Data Analytics Gives and Takes

In the business world opportunities abound and their markers are everywhere. Data Analytics is the best tool to translate these markers into human readable form. According to a study done by Forrester Consulting in 2015 only 31% of companies have a clear digital strategy.

As we have seen in a previous presentation Data Analytics may increase the revenue and/or decrease the expenses but it will always add some costs. For a new project to make business sense we need to be sure the difference between benefits (increase in revenue, decrease in expenses) and cost increase is positive.

Thales not only did the forecast but also understood its business value, conceived and executed an optimum strategy for this environment. Without this whole process the analytic part would have been just an exercise in futility.

Analytics and valuation are the starting point. The Valuation of Data Analytics gives you the current picture and creates the avenues for improving the bottom line but is just one of the steps required to create true value.
