What are the common hurdles encountered when putting analytics to work in a business, both in developing analytical models and applications and in building enterprise analytical capability? This question is central to IIA’s mission of helping organizations navigate the many challenges to achieving analytics maturity, so we decided to revisit it in 2022.
In this eBook, we focus on some of the biggest obstacles faced today. We grouped these obstacles into four categories and tackled two obstacles per category:
Business: Challenges that relate to business strategy, acumen, and management, includingleadership and adoption of analytical outputs and insights
Execution: Common challenges in the actual analytics work, including approaches to project work and model management
Data and Technical: Obstacles that often require investments and strong partnerships with IT and technology vendors, including improving data platforms and analytic tooling
People: Fundamental challenges facing both analytics and business individuals and teams, and the need for strong collaboration and partnership between them
