Business Intelligence - Are you game for the Moneyball Process?

The importance of data-driven decision making and different aspects of looking at data was much popularized among the civic society by Brad Pitt starred Hollywood movie ‘Moneyball’ which is based on a true story.

A quick snapshot of the storyline:
“Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) is upset by his team’s loss to the New York Yankees in the 2001 postseason. With the impending departure of star players, Beane attempts to devise a strategy for assembling a competitive team for 2002 but struggles to overcome Oakland’s limited payroll. Billy turns baseball on its ear when he uses statistical data to analyze and place value on the players (not star players though) he picks for the team. This resulted in Oakland’s Athletics (baseball team) set a team record of 20 wins in a row. Similar strategy was adopted by Boston Red Sox’s who won the World Series in 2004 since their first win in 1918”

(Sources: WIKI, IMDB)

What Beane had done differently that turned the game around was application of Sabermetrics (A Statistical analytics method of analyzing data points in the game of baseball). The analytics lead application of Sabermetrics helped Beane to question traditional methods of evaluation such as RBI (Runs Batted In) and batting average. It took in-depth analysis to conclude that matches were not won by players with higher batting average but by those with a higher On Base percentage (OBP), Slugging percentage (SLG). Beane formed a team based on these new metrics and other parameters.

Big Data Landscape for Supply Chain

Supply Chain of Information

Supply Chain essentially is considered to be the flow of goods and services across the manufacturing / retail value chain in order to deliver the desired goods/service to the end-customer. With the proliferation of information technology, supply chain in addition to the above mentioned components is essentially the flow of information between the different entities – Suppliers, OEMs, Manufacturers, Distributors and Retailers.

Interestingly these entities have varied touch points outside enterprise boundaries – web (social, videos, blogs etc..) handheld devices (EOBRs), RFIDs etc that makes it a challenge to control the bullwhip effect. This necessitates for a strategy to handle unstructured data (Big Data).


What the Research Says?

Organizations have realized this importance and are focusing on Big Data initiatives, but according to a research by Supply Chain Insights LLC – deriving intelligence from sources outside enterprise boundaries still remains to be a challenge.

A Proactive Approach to Building an Effective Data Warehouse

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” – The famous quote attributed to Albert Einstein applies as much to Business Intelligence & Analytics as it does to other things. Many organizations that turn to BI&A for help on strategic business concerns such as increasing customer churn, drop in quality levels, missed revenue opportunities face disappointment. One of the important reasons for this is that the data that can provide such insights is just not there. For example, to understand the poor sales performance in a particular region during a year, it will not just help to have data about our sales plan, activities, opportunities, conversions and sales achieved / missed, it will also require understanding of other disruptive forces such as competitors promotions, change in customer preferences, new entrants or alternatives.

Thomas Davenport, a household name in the BI&A community, in his book ‘Analytics at Work’, explains the analytical DELTA (Data, Enterprise, Leadership, Targets and Analysts), a framework that organizations could adopt to implement analytics effectively for better business decisions and results. He emphasizes that besides the necessity of having clean, integrated and enterprise-wide data in a warehouse, it is also important that the data enables to measure something new and important.
