Data Science Services
The first step in conducting a data science projects involves conducting an assessment. This assessment is aimed at determining financial as well as hard-to-quantify benefits including customer goodwill. This is not a short process; it that can take several months and the input of several skilled advisors to execute.
The Anatomy of a Data Science Project
A data science project not only constructs but also operationalizes a scientific model. That model in turn can help in optimizing a set of business decisions with the specific goal of identifying the business case realized from the assessment. A data science project is comprised of the following components:
- data sampling
- variable selection
- development of the scientific model
Also, when a need exists for either the development of a decision support system (DSS) or decision automation system (DAS), we deploy the following activities as well including:
- data architecture
- ETL development
- solution development
- simulation development
- verification and validation
Decision analysis involves modeling a strategic or tactical decision that requires either substantial investment or has potentially far-reaching consequences. In this case, the development of a decision model can help the decision maker understand the alternatives, uncertainties, and possible outcomes, all in depth. It can be of assistance to the business owner in making rational business decisions, within certain risk perimeters. It can also be an ideal way of identifying uncertainties that a business owner should seek to reduce prior to making decisions and provides insight into doing so as well.
Benefits of Decision Analysis
Decision analysis can aid the decision maker in making more confident decisions on key matters. Not only can it provide them with the confidence that they have thoroughly explored the different facets of a particular issue, but it is a practical option for companies looking to maximize their time and money as well. This can be particularly important in the eyes of stakeholders.
The Anatomy of Decision Analysis
Data analysis can help you make many business decisions. These include:
- whether to enter a given market
- whether to acquire a business
- where to locate a facility
Decision analysis can be effective as well in discovering areas of decision making that are defined by unacceptably high levels of uncertainty. In these cases, uncertainties such as this can be reduced through a value of information (VoI) analysis. VoI analysis is particularly effective at reducing uncertainty affecting a decision’s outcome and can be effective in shedding light on methods for doing so.
Decision analysis is also useful for analyzing a decision maker’s risk tolerance as well through sensitivity analysis, perceived likelihoods, and possible outcomes. Sensitivity analysis can explore whether (as well as how) optimal decision changes with variations in risk tolerance.
