Synopsis

"A very rich book sprinkled with real-life examples as well as battle-tested advice."

of a formidable business transformation."

-Deepak Advani, Vice President, Business Analytics Products and SPSS, IBM



Build Systems That Work Actively to Help You Maximize Growth and Profits

Most companies rely on operational systems that are largely passive. But what if you could make your systems active participants in optimizing your business? What if your systems could act intelligently on their own? Learn, not just report? Empower users to take action instead of simply escalating their problems? Evolve without massive IT investments?



Decision Management Systems can do all that and more. In this book, the field's leading expert demonstrates how to use them to drive unprecedented levels of business value. James Taylor shows how to integrate operational and analytic technologies to create systems that are more agile, more analytic, and more adaptive. Through actual case studies, you'll learn how to combine technologies such as predictive analytics, optimization, and business rules-improving customer service, reducing fraud, managing risk, increasing agility, and driving growth.



Both a practical how-to guide and a framework for planning, Decision Management Systems focuses on mainstream business challenges.
