Two-thirds of organizations failing to deliver business impact from analytics investments

Research from TDWI and ThoughtSpot, the leader in search & AI-driven analytics, reveals the emergence of a new generation of business analysts as organizations modernize their analytics capabilities and aim to unlock the value of ever increasing amounts of data. 

The report, “The Modern Analyst: Meeting Tomorrow’s Challenge” surveys 430 data and analytics professionals including six industry sectors in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. The study found that analysts at most organizations are not reporting success from their analytics projects. To do so, analysts must evolve their role to empower others, namely nontechnical business users to understand data, uncover insights on their own, and improve decision-making. In the process, these analysts will be able to upskill, focus on more strategic business initiatives, and unlock new career opportunities.

The research also says that enterprises aren’t fully tapping the value of their analysts. Simultaneously, analysts want to be delivering greater impact

UPS: New CEO, New Strategy To Deliver Sustainable Alpha (NYSE:UPS)

Introduction – following a tried and true playbook

Not following its usual practice, UPS (UPS) appointed a board member as CEO as of June 1: Carol Tome, the long-serving CFO of Home Depot (HD). This former banker helped lead HD through the aftermath of the housing bust. From a Great Recession low below $20, HD has soared above $275, while paying steadily rising dividends. The strategy there was to more or less freeze the store count, not expand into Europe, Asia or South America, and focus on optimizing operations. Operating margins rose, and HD was relatively early in emulating Amazon (AMZN) in utilizing technology in the service of selling “stuff.” I discussed this point two years ago in How Home Depot Is Moving Toward Tech To Drive Alpha.

HD’s recovery from the Great Recession and entry into a strong bull phase stemmed from optimizing its assets; becoming better rather than
