TDWI research indicates that organizations are struggling to advance their analytics programs. There are numerous reasons for this which are both technical and organizational in nature. On the technical front, organizations are struggling with their data. Data is often siloed, it is not of high quality, and some organizations don’t have the right tools in place to access, understand, or prepare data. On the organizational front, culture and leadership are often issues, as well as the necessary talent to move forward. For instance, there is the need for greater training in data science and statistical modeling.
