Based on the promise of transformative solutions, businesses across industries are investing millions of dollars on developing their advanced analytics/data science capabilities. However, measurable ROI can be hard to find, and many face substantial delays or don't even get off the ground. At the core of many of these stalled deployments is a lack of a comprehensive, integrated approach to deploying advanced analytic capabilities. Do we need better math? Is it the software? A shortage of unicorns, maybe?
