“The strategic role of analytics and analytic thinking is changing rapidly in every industry and sector of our society, including wholesale distribution, for a single very good reason – better decision making,” says Tom Gale, executive editor.

Analytics has evolved rapidly in wholesale distribution channels, fueled in part by the explosion of technology innovation over the past several years but also because of the industry’s natural lifecycle. Companies that establish and build analytic capability can stay ahead of the recent waves of disruption, and the Distributor's Guide to Analytics can help them on this journey.

“The strategic role of analytics and analytic thinking is changing rapidly in every industry and sector of our society, including wholesale distribution, for a single very good reason – better decision making,” says Tom Gale, executive editor, contributing author and president of Gale Media. “Companies find there is a huge return on investment in building a capability and culture based on analytic thinking.”

No matter where your company is on the spectrum of analytics adoption and thinking, the Distributor’s Guide to Analytics (http://www.mdm.com/analyticsbook) will improve your decision making – and your bottom line.
