I gave a keynote last week at the Teradata User Group Conference in Las Vegas. The subject was “Collaborative Analytics”. To me, it seems logical that two key trends – the rise of Collaboration and the interest in Analytics should come together to create the concept of Collaborative Analytics. I define Collaborative Analytics as a process whereinter-organizational teams organize, analyze and interpret federated customer and operations data to make better joint business decisions.
In this presentation, I first talk about the importance of Collaboration, and the rise of the Collaborative Enterprise. The Collaborative Enterprise consists of Collaborative Business Processes, which are inter-enterprise processes that need to be designed and optimized at the Business Network level, not at the level of the enterprise. Next, I discuss the concept of Collaborative Analytics, which is analytics for the Collaborative Enterprise. I point out the promise and potential of Collaborative Analytics, and discuss the challenges in implementation. I also offer a 5-step process for putting Collaborative Analytics to work.
