Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) October 08, 2012
Companies operating on a global scale are inundated with a large volume of data from multiple sources including B2B data, B2C data, traffic data, transactional data, third party vendor data, macroeconomic data, and more. While some businesses don't even know where to start, others are determined to move beyond basic reporting and analysis. New from John Wiley & Sons, WIN WITH ADVANCED BUSINESS ANALYTICS: Creating Business Value from Your Data (October 2012; $60.00), is a complete plain English guide for strategic business analytics and big data implementation. This book tackles the massive assignment of integrating multiple types of intelligence, such as web analytics, customer feedback, competitive intelligence, customer behavior, and industry intelligence into a business practice.
WIN WITH ADVANCED BUSINESS ANALYTICS defines business analytics as the integration of disparate data sources from inside and outside the enterprise that are necessary to answer and act on forward-looking business questions tied to key business objectives. Though business analytics is a relatively new field, it has the potential for great organizational impact and importance, much beyond the traditional reporting function, research department, or “business intelligence” activities. Effective business analytics is a focus for business leaders across the globe in ever-increasing numbers. It is becoming clear that in today’s cut-throat business climate, failing to leverage business analytics effectively can mean the difference between organizations thriving or declining. Win With Advanced Business Analytics covers:
•The Challenge of Business Analytics
•The BASP Framework
•Aligning Key Business Challenges
•Social Media Analytics
•Analytics and Innovation
•Leveraging Digital Analytics Effectively
•Winning with Predictive Analytics
•Business Performance Tracking
•Unstructured Data Analytics
The need for advanced business analytics is exploding. A 2011 report by the McKinsey Global Institute projects that the United States needs 1.5 million more data-literate managers to meet the demands of the data-driven enterprise, and a recent International Data Corporation (IDC) report predicts that the business analytics market will grow to $33.9 billion. Written by an author team with successful analytics implementation experiences across North America, Europe, Asia PAC and Developing Markets, WIN WITH ADVANCED BUSINESS ANALYTICS provides a comprehensive framework and applications to help readers leverage business analytics and big data to outpace the competition.
