- Digital business thrives on data and the analysis of data, yet many enterprises find their ambitions inhibited by their earlier behaviors. They treated data and analytics as supportive and secondary to their business initiatives.
- Many enterprises lack an organizational focus on data and analytics. Many still have not named an executive to be responsible for the optimization of data and analytics and the development of related enterprise competencies.
- Data and analytics organizations have traditionally focused on delivering services for projects rather than building and distributing enterprisewide competencies. They should instead foster communities of practice and try to collaborate to achieve the results they desire.
