Does your company rely on intuition or analytics when allocating budgets, identifying customers, defining marketing campaigns?

Is your organization closed to approaches that challenge current practices?

How often do you have the analytics you need to make a good decision?

If you work with analytics, tell us your experiences in our second annual survey on analytics in the enterprise. As a thank you for completing the survey, we will enter you for an opportunity to win a free Apple iPad2.

One big question: What cultural challenges inhibit the use of analytics in your company? Unwillingness to share data internally? Power-based constraints? What about technology challenges? Like difficulty extracting info from unstructured sources such as email? Or difficulty integrating data across silos?

Our first survey, Analytics: The New Path to Value, was released last fall. This year we continue our inquiry into the “how” — how companies are overcoming challenges, how they can learn from others’ experiences.

Decision makers do not have the patience to properly comprehend the analytics,neither do they appreciate the importance of the analytics. Policy statements are usually too general to be useful, and  the programs actually launched are more influenced by local needs at particular points in time.The use of analytics, more often than not, are relegated to the researhers or consultants who have been appointed to conduct the relevant studies. Of course, they too have to be diplomatic in presenting their reports so as not to insult them with too much teachnicalities, or embarrass them should the findings go against the interest of the stakeholders. After all, client is king and client dissatisfaction could adversely affect future revenues.
