In past decade, organisations have been heavily investing in analytics. A recent survey suggests that organisations have become even more keen to invest in analytics since the COVID pandemic hit the world. However, the same survey suggests that most organisations are able to measure the return on those investments leave alone identifying how to extract a better return from those investments. To address this open question, Professor Kayande will present results from a longitudinal study of the extent to which analytics investments translate into financial returns, and how that translation can be accelerated by an organisation. He will conclude by presenting a roadmap for organisations to more eefficiently and effectively invest in analytics.
