'Organizations are pivoting towards operational analytics as it can both increase the efficiency and performance of the back office as well as boost the customer experience in the front office.' comments Anne-Laure Thieullent, Head of Big Data in Europe, for Capgemini's Insights & Data global practice. 'However, despite the focus, there are factors limiting the success of these projects; specifically siloed datasets, fragile governance models, inability to harness third party data sources, and an absence of a strong mandate from leadership teams.' 'Going Big: Why Organizations Need to Focus on Operations Analytics' from Capgemini Consulting's Digital Transformation Institute mapped organizations based on the extent to which their analytics initiatives were integrated with core operations processes and their success rate with initiatives, identifying four stages of operational analytics maturity: Capgemini Consulting's Digital Transformation Institute applied the four stages of operational analytics maturity to build up a geographic picture of adoption and success rates around the world. US companies are not only the most advanced with their analytics initiatives but also the most successful; 50 percent have successfully realized the desired benefits from operational analytics compared to only 23 percent of Chinese respondents, despite China ranking highly for level of implementation. A strong contributing factor of the success of US companies is their focus on setting up effective data and governance processes. The prominence of US organizations tallies with a recent resurgence in US manufacturing and will drive US manufacturing competitiveness in the coming years.
In the United States, more than half of all households are expected to have a digital assistant or smart speaker like Google Home or Amazon Echo by 2022, and many people already today use these devices for shopping. In the Nordic region, however, relatively few consumers have purchased or plan to purchase an AI-based digital assistant. Those Nordic residents who do have one primarily use assistants to play music, do research and manage to-do lists. Yet when it comes to online shopping, the purchasing journey is to a high degree driven by convenience. In the next few years, AI solutions that save customers time and energy are expected to become increasingly common.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is set to radically reshape the way companies do business. From retail to healthcare and finance, machines are likely to play a growing role in making companies more efficient, responsive, and relevant to customers' lives. Already, AI is the driver behind some of the world's most profitable businesses, helping technology firms distribute an array of products and services across digital platforms. Companies such as Amazon, Netflix, and Tencent are leading the development, creating personalized offerings that evolve in line with people's choices and preferences. In the age of AI, industry boundaries become ever fuzzier, with companies forming alliances, even with competitors, and moving into new industries by innovatively leveraging their vast amounts of data and technology.
