This paper explores how companies are increasingly turning to analytics to gain a competitive edge. The authors argue that as they do so companies must resolve unique demands on their information technology, their structure, their processes and their culture. Of critical importance, it is argued, is the need for businesses to recognize their analytical talent as a distinct workforce and of increasing importance. The paper goes on to consider how businesses are already harnessing the talent power of their analysts, at all levels, to ensure data is turned into better decisions and better business results.
