As recent studies show, organizations that apply analytics outperform their peers. Just look at their financial results: up to 1.6X revenue growth, 2X EBITDA growth and 2.5X stock price appreciation.*
Those with broad-based, analytics-driven cultures – what IBM calls a high “Analytics Quotient” – have several things in common. For one, whether in business, government or academia, they typically have an Analytics Center of Excellence (ACE). Such a center – physical, virtual or both -- provides a structured way for teams of people to work across functional lines to achieve analytic excellence. Learn more about building an ACE.
