Business Value – the Why of it all!

I have two children, currently aged 12 and 8.  You may be thinking, why is that relevant to Business Value?  One of the best things about children at these early ages is their curiosity, and furthermore, one of the key questions that they consistently ask when given any answer, is WHY?  But they inevitably don’t […]

Synthetic Data is as “real” as historical data!

By Dave Sissens and Phillip Straley It’s ironic that analytics professionals often work in situations with limited data availability, poor data quality, or both. In many cases, large amounts of granular data is available but legal or security concerns make it difficult to access in a timely or secure manner. The current COVID-19 situation, with much […]

Fear caused the last financial crisis, fear can cause it again
