Jo Maitland, Research Director for Infrastructure, Cloud Computing with Gigaom Research, invited our very own Patrick Taylor, CEO of Oversight, to talk about the trend and movement around Insights on Demand on a recent podcast. People know the analysis they need to be doing and the questions they need to know the answers to but there is a shortage of data scientists expertise out there. Patrick and Jo discuss how Insights as a Service (a.k.a. Insights on a Demand) are a way to bridge that gap and the difference between Insights as a Service and Analytics as a Service mainly being Analytics as a Service being more exploratory in nature. Insights as a Service is a way that business users can get the answers to their already known questions and gain insights and recommendations for what actions they should take. How can companies put analytics to work in the operations of the business and make better daily business decisions. A lot of power in driving these capabilities out to the front lines. Think about the profound impact on the bottom line that thousands of better daily operational decisions (in addition to big picture strategic decisions) were made every day? During this podcast, Jo and Patrick also discuss the current privacy debate and if continuous monitoring in the corporate world plays a role in that. Take a listen and let us know what you think about the potential value of Insights as a Service to your organization.
