Hired Brain   By Neil Raden, Founder, Hired Brains Research

Businesses are ramping up their ability to analyze data. But the practice of "analytics" is hindered by legacy approaches to gathering and modeling data. Embedding analytical processing inside the database is one way to supercharge data warehouse performance to handle mixed workloads like interactive analytics, operational, or predictive. But is that really enough?

Effective, iterative, analytics in organizations are an ongoing process, not ad hoc exercises. Good work is done by a single analyst using advanced descriptive, predictive and optimizing quantitative methods, but this is just the beginning. For these efforts to pay off, analytical models must be woven into a series of steps where they become production artifacts. This requires a whole set of capabilities far beyond those found in standalone statistical modeling packages.
