Analytics can mean different things to different people depending on their background, perspective, and organizational context and culture. For example, for some, analytics serves as the underpinning of organization strategy and innovation, while others treat analytics as an alchemy yet to be fully understood. Regardless of where you are in your analytics journey, there are a number of best practices that help frame the discussion of analytics value and position an organization for success.
In this presentation, we will talk about the five best practice areas of analytics and the importance of design thinking as a tool to help us design and deliver analytic products and services that create value for organizations.

Alexandre Hubert, Data Scientist at Dataiku, recently launched a side project called Human or Company: a web page where anyone can enter a Twitter username and instantly determine whether that username belongs to a person or a company.

Although this is a low-key and modest side project, it is a great example of building a real-time prediction service with advanced analytics, and it's a way of showing that trendy terms like machine learning or artificial intelligence can be used in simple and small (but effective!) ways.
