Title: 10 Tips on Building Successful Predictive Analytics Solutions for Businesses Today

Richard Boire

Abstract: The growing importance of predictive analytics is now recognized as a major competitive advantage in business today. Harvard Business professor Thomas Davenport's best selling business book 'Competing on Analytics' is a testimonial to the ever-growing importance of this discipline.

As with any discipline, there is a process and approach that is critical in creating the necessary steps for building successful solutions. Within this process and through many years of experience in building analytical solutions, much learning has amassed on what works and what does not work.

Through this learning, we highlight some of the key considerations when building predictive analytics solutions. The discussion commences in the most important area of data and proceeds to other areas related to use of software and statistics as well as validation and interpretation of results. The discussion ends with thoughts on how to embed predictive analytics as part of the corporate culture and in particular how to reinforce this culture through the ongoing discipline of measurement.
