Question: Over the past 30 months, I have received 140+ credit card offers from just two banks? Typical Response: We are very successful doing things as we have evolved them. We have made significant investments in customer segmentation. You are an exception and this doesn’t happen to most people.

All rights reserved.7 Analytics Trends 2014 So what could these companies have known about me? • They could derive / purchase data about my propensities • They could better understand what I do with them – avoid annoyance or look to expand effectively • They could evaluate if I have ever done business with them and analyze if this is the best way to start • They could evaluate the extent to which I do business with them and determine if they are “nickel and diming” me • They could clean their data to avoid duplicates, offers to minors, etc. • They could look for ways to cross-sell me by bundling offers in some meaningful way • They could understand my affinities – do I appreciate such offers? Do I think it is a waste of paper? • They could determine if I’m even worth the effort and expense at all
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.8 Analytics Trends 2014 Cognitive Bias Examples from my Consulting Experience Examples • Comment from a Financial Services executive in a pricing meeting: “I recommend we increase interest rates (APR) on our accessory motor lending products by 30 basis points this year because this summer will be very hot and the demand for motor “toys” will increase”. • How does the executive know what the weather will be like in a few months? Can she be sure that demand for motor “toys” will go up? • During a price optimization exercise a food retailer decided not to price different flavors of a product differently despite empirical evidence that some flavors were significantly more sensitive to price. They (wrongly) discussed that other food products were not priced that way. By pricing all flavors the same the company was unable to obtain a gross margin benefit of more than $4 million in the first year. • Comment from a Retail executive: “we don’t care as much about the needs of men in our catalog and stores” because 80% of our customers are women. • But what if sales are saturated for women and there could be a latent opportunity to sell more to men? If the infrastructure is there to sell to men (since 20% of sales is to men) then why not see if there is a way to increase male traffic to stores and catalog?

Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.11 Analytics Trends 2014 The talent crunch • Conventional wisdom says companies are facing a large supply gap of data analytics talent at all levels. • Entry-level positions are challenging to fill, and there’s also a major drought at the most senior levels, though few such leaders are needed overall. • Professionals who can deliver and communicate data- backed insights that create business value—not just number crunchers—are especially hard to find. • Is that conventional wisdom right, or are other forces at play? Some of the current talent crunch is a function of resource hoarding, recruiting talent beyond what is actually needed. Two sides to the story
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.12 Analytics Trends 2014 What makes a great Data Scientist? • Creativity – someone who looks at problems, issues and challenges and naturally navigates to places typically not thought of. • Curiosity – someone who becomes a student of the organization and looks for ways to sense, detect and identify issues and problems needing attention. Someone who has a natural affinity for out-of-the-box and non-obvious issues. • Results and Team Orientation – someone who recognizes that success comes from getting things done, not merely doing things – whether individually or with others. This requires determination, intellectual rigor, patience and leadership. • Fact-Oriented with a Gut – someone who understands the power of fact orientation and the dangers of subjectivity and over reliance on gut. • Technical Diversity – someone who understands that having experience in many tools and methods is essential. Also the person is part programmer, data manager, statistician, business analyst, strategist and other skills. • Communicator – someone who can express complex concepts to the layman
Do you have access to the right data?
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.14 Analytics Trends 2014 Emerging Data Platforms – Two Sides to the Story • There’s no question that big data platforms have become a critical capability for organizations of virtually every shape and size. • Easy-to-use software, from conventional enterprise data warehouse (EDW) to the new Hadoop platform, make complex data accessible and understandable for almost any business user. • Some say that conventional enterprise data warehouses are now a vanishing breed, giving way to new big data platforms such as Hadoop clusters. These new platforms cost a fraction per terabyte to store and process data compared to what traditional warehouses do. • Hadoop is cheaper than the data appliances of the past decade. What’s more - Hadoop platforms don’t just store data—they can also perform substantial processing tasks and even some analytics.
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.15 Analytics Trends 2014 Do you have access to the underlying data? • Some people think of Big Data as anything that doesn’t fit in an Excel spreadsheet! • In some simple contexts, Big Data is used to refer to any form of advanced statistical analytics or predictive modeling using diverse internal/external data sources • In many contexts, Big Data is shorthand for the granular and numerous data sources used for analytics projects - big, small, old, new, structured, unstructured, etc. • In more esoteric data contexts, some examples include geospatial, social/ sentiment, audio/video, mobile information, telematics, telephonic, internet searching, web logs, etc. Big Data refers to internal and external data that is multi- structured, generated from diverse sources in real-time and in large volumes making it beyond the ability of traditional technology to capture, manage and process within a tolerable amount of elapsed time

All rights reserved.16 Analytics Trends 2014 The Importance of the Big Data Trend & How to Capitalize On It 16 Source: British Retail Consortium (BRC) Analysis While Big Data has driven IT spending, hype should not drive the attention away from data quality, relevance, redundancy, and most importantly, insights Data Quality Data cleaning might take more effort than data analysis. The magnitude of bad data will get amplified with the increase in type of sources, and volume of data – but keep the 80:20 Rule in mind Interpretability Substantial amount of data is unstructured and hence liable to different interpretation by different people and machines Business decisions stand the risk of being based on biased interpretations Relevance The amount of data stored will have contextual relevance with individuals analyzing the data. ‘One Man’s Signal is another Man’s Noise’ Privacy Issues As organizations capture more volumes of data from various sources, they are more susceptible to disturbing privacy concerns Especially as more and more consumer data is being used, organizations will have to be sensitive about the data they use Redundancy There are chances, organizations are capturing same data from multiple sources, multiple times e.g., Tweets, updates Organizations should be wary they are not investing in capturing one data point from multiple sources Novelty Most of the time, a lot of data captured from Big Data sources is already captured in existing data available with the enterprise Big Data investments should focus on finding new insights Dilutes Value Focus With Big Data hype, a lot of attention is going into collection, storage, and access of Big Data This has diverted attention from analysis and ultimate use of data Knowing what organizations want to do with the data might also be an important question to consider Avoid “Hoarding” Complex Big Data is still confusing to many professionals After the hype subsides, efforts into making it less complex, and user friendly should ensue

The rise of the Chief Analytics Officer
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.20 Analytics Trends 2014 The rise of the Chief Analytics (and Big Data) Officer • A few years ago, there were no Chief Analytics Officers, no Chief Data Officers, no Chief Science Officers, and no heads of Big Data. Today, there are many—in the tens, if not the hundreds. That in itself is evidence of a trend. • Can C-level analytics and big data positions help organizations do more with their resources? We don’t have a lot of data on this yet, but the answer seems likely to be yes. • The more important question, though is do you have the right big data leadership in your organization? And do they live by the credo – “don’t confuse effort with results”? • Another C-level role may be overkill? – Well, these roles may well become pervasive in the long run, but we should have someone to lead the use of them today and for the foreseeable future. Organizational structures always should be flexible, and when we see an important new capability arriving on the scene, we should create a role to manage it. Two sides to the story
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.21 Analytics Trends 2014 The rise of the Chief Analytics (and Big Data) Officer • Too much time spent on data management versus analytics and value? • Need to focus on End-To-End Execution of the analytics story End-to-End Business Value 1. Business Strategy 2. Big Data Analytics 3. Biz & Ops Implement & Integration 4. Technology Integration 5. Org & Change Management 6. Performance Management
Do you have the appropriate data tools?
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.23 Analytics Trends 2014 Do you have the appropriate tools? • The rise of big data has many implications – it’s not just about how much data you have – but also having the right data tools to manage it. • From machine learning to discovery and visual exploration to pattern and relationship identification, today’s big data tools have come along way. These tools can easily affirm the adage that a picture is worth a thousand words. Or, in this case, numbers. • Big data platforms are rising in prominence as these help in converting huge amount of data into sense-making insights to drive business decisions. • Here a few tools you should be likely considering to manage your data in order to drive insights for your business : Data Discovery Machine Learning Two sides to the story Data Visualization
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.24 Analytics Trends 2014 What’s Important About Data Visualization Capabilities? • Presents results of sophisticated analysis on large and complex data sets in understandable & actionable formats • Makes insights accessible to a much broader audience based on user experience, appetite, aptitude, ineptitude • Helps allocate the scarcest resource a decision maker has: attention • Increases communications impact with key stakeholders (C-Suite, Boards, media, analysts, customers, etc.) • Know Your Audience - is not for everyone – should allow easy interaction with data for those who want to dive deeper • Capability requires appropriate information architecture, governance, security, software, staffing, training

Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.29 Analytics Trends 2014 Machine learning finds a big data niche • Machine learning isn’t a new idea. It’s been around in theoretical form since the 1960s and in academic use since the ’70s and ’80s. Broadly speaking, machine learning is the ability of computers to learn from data. • In analytics, it typically means the semi-automated development of predictive and prescriptive models that get better over time. The software learns how to better fit the data, separating meaningful signals from meaningless noise. • Machine learning methods and results tend to be “black boxes” that don’t sit well with business people. • Machine learning can improve analytics performance, but it’s a double- edged sword. Humans have to maintain control as they’re ultimately accountable for the outcomes – people specify inputs and interpret outputs, people adjust model parameters to fit business purposes, people interpret for executive decision makers. • Modeling factory concepts is gaining steady adoption. .

Analytics drives industry
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.32 Analytics Trends 2014 Media & Entertainment Industry But there is still room for improvement The entertainment industry has begun to explore shifting from human judgment and experience to using analytics to determine which movies, television programs, plays, and books customers want to experience. Relativity Media, a film producer and studio, reportedly employs an analytics algorithm to decide which movies to make. The track record in the entertainment industry of predicting consumer interest has been poor. Many Hollywood films fail to make money, television programs are quickly canceled, and, among the hundreds of thousands of books published each year, few sell more than 100 copies. Analytics drives entertainment
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.33 Analytics Trends 2014 How do I get started? As retailers have pushed into new sales channels, it has become more difficult to track and manage the customer experience. But today’s analytics tools are able to bridge the gap, drawing in data from siloed data sets—plus external data on demographics, psychographics, share of wallet, and more—to create a more complete understanding of the customer experience through their eyes. Commit Your people should be committed to data quality—and to acting on the insights that come from analytics. Identify patterns Your organization already knows some of the patterns that bring new customers in— it’s just as important to know when they’re on the way out. Plan for intervention You don’t have to have analytics insights in hand before developing concrete plans for retaining or winning back at-risk customers. Customer Analytics for Retail Retail Industry
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.34 Analytics Trends 2014 “Crunchy Question” Approach to Realizing Analytic Value Crunchy questions are practical, detailed inquiries into tough business issues — roll-up-your-sleeves questions. These are designed to lay the groundwork for action. Characteristics of Crunchy Questions § Specific § Relate to a particular business process and aligned with strategic goals § Focus on optimizing or innovating, not merely informing § Consider change relative to other indicators or processes § Leverage and integrate internal and external inputs § More forward or inward looking than backward looking § More about differentiation than just comparison § Consider various scenarios § Actionable, i.e. more about “do it” than “prove it” § Require advanced tools and techniques to answer
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.35 Analytics Trends 2014 The “Crunchy Question” Approach to Realizing Analytic Value Retail § Who is our customer? (Are you sure?) § Are our campaigns reaching the right customers with the right message at the right time? § Is our brand relevant to the customers we want to attract? § What is the ROI on marketing investments? Which add value and which do not? Media & Entertainment § How can we improve supply chain efficiency without exposing ourselves to excessive risk? § Who are the next thousand customers we’re at risk of losing—and why? § How many customers will we lose if we increase prices? § Where exactly are we leaking margin? § Where should we set up our next distribution center?

All rights reserved.37 Analytics Trends 2014 Pricing analytics can unlock smart value creation • Analytics can lead the way on pricing and customer profitability. • Facing growing complexity and a multi-channel business environment, companies need to be able to answer fundamental business questions: Who is my most profitable customer?

The Privacy Paradox
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.40 Analytics Trends 2014 Putting big data and privacy under the microscope There’s a paradox at the heart of the big data opportunity – the more powerful it is, the more dangerous it has the potential to be Clearly, companies are walking a tightrope when it comes to balancing the need to deliver a better experience with the need to do right by consumers on the issue of privacy.
Copyright © 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.41 Analytics Trends 2014 Here’s the debate Some customers want us to know them better. They are delighted when they feel that a company really understands their needs. Some think it’s just creepy! For them, it may feel like they’re under surveillance. And nobody wants that!

All rights reserved.42 Analytics Trends 2014 A few examples illustrating conundrums • Fitness bands – privacy, EULAs, what they know about users, what users want to know, monetization • The value equation can’t survive if it’s lopsided – both parties need to derive value • Regulations and low face value life insurance underwriting
