Organizations deal with business problems. In order to improve, the most effective ones convert those business problems into analytics problems. The first step in solving analytics problems is having access to the right data and the right metrics. The next step is becoming a “data janitor.” Once the data is prepared for analysis, it must then be graphed. Graphing data informs hypothesis generation; building models is vital for testing those hypotheses. However, building models is useless if you can’t convince decision makers to act on what the data reveals. Sharing results in a format that can be easily understood by decision makers is necessary for this task. Scientists and engineers working together using JMP as the language of analytical thinking is what ties the whole journey together, ensuring that everyone in the organization appreciates the real value of analytics.
