New Book Release by Andersen Alumnus Doug Laney: “Data Juice: 101 Real-World Stories of How Organizations Are Squeezing Value From Available Data Assets”

Author: Douglas Laney, Former Andersen Consulting manager and Gartner distinguished analyst, currently Innovation Fellow with West Monroe

All too often organizations fixate on building evermore reports with pretty pie charts or dashing dashboards instead of using data and analytics to transform the business. After all, they’re simple to create, don’t require a lot of data or data integration, and are easy to understand. However, organizations really moving the needle are those using data and analytics, not for basic hindsight reporting, but rather for diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive analyses, or to automate or digitalize aspects of their business.

Laney’s latest book, Data Juice is a follow-up to his international best-seller, Infonomics: How to Monetize, Manage, and Measure Information as an Asset for Competitive Advantage in which he shared dozens of actual use cases.

Data Juice, however, is more of a reference book meant to inspire (or shame) business, data, and technology leaders into becoming more data-driven. Each story is accompanied by a set of searchable tags, indicators of the types of benefits achieved, and an expert commentary by one of dozens of the world’s top practitioners and thought leaders.

Is the juice worth the squeeze? Very often it is. Most of these real-world examples include significant economic benefits well beyond their investment.

Already Data Juice has received accolades from executives around the world, including:
