‟The biggest challenge we see in Prescriptive Analytics initiatives is that there is not enough focus on the business case we are trying to address. At times, companies are more interested in having new tools implemented, even if they don’t address the root problems or generate value. Our approach is to first confirm that it is possible to apply Prescriptive Analytics to solve the problem, conduct a proof of value to confirm that initial hypothesis still holds and then roll-out to other sites or use cases.”
