De Data Runner Vision

  1. Descriptive Analytics

Gain first insights in data. Setting up data collection, data structures, and data strategies. “Everyone is talking about big data, what is the fuzz about”.

  1. Declarative Analytics

Next step in data exploration to understand business processes. Getting questions answered by using data explorations embedded in the day to day business.

  1. Predictive Analytics

Knowing what happened in the past, the future is there to predict. Using algorithms and training machine learning models to predict future behaviour. Business teams are in place to start proof of concepts and data roadmaps are determined.

  1. Prescriptive Analytics

Machine learning models are developed and ready to pilot. Data cloud platforms are used to deploy models for automated decision making. Closed feedback loops are in place to continuously monitor en improve models upon. Cloud strategy is part of the new business processes. Furthermore, model management and business adoption are crucial for success.
