Although the potential of Big Data and business intelligence are recognized by organizations, Gartner analyst Nick Heudecker says that the failure rate of analytics projects is close to 85%. Uncovering the power of analytics improves business operations, reduces costs, enhances decision-making, and enables the launching of more personalized products.

In this article, our research covers:

  • How to measure analytics success?
  • What are some analytics case studies?

How to measure analytics success?

According to Gartner CDO Survey, the top 3 critical success factors of analytics projects are:

  • Creation of a data-driven culture within the organization,
  • Data integration and data skills training across the organization,
  • And implementation of a data management and analytics strategy.

The success of the process of analytics depends on asking the right question. It requires an understanding of the appropriate data required for each goal to be achieved. We’ve listed 20 successful analytics applications/case studies from different industries.

During our research, we examined that partnering with an analytics consultant helps organizations boost their success if organizations’ tech team lacks certain data skills.
