I found it funny that I was asked to let you know about a survey (more on that in a moment) when right now I am facing one of the most difficult questions in years.
"Who do you want to win in the basketball finals, the San Antonio Spurs or the Miami Heat?"
It's a difficult question for me because I live in Texas but I was raised in Miami.
This is my "subway series."
So, how about questions that have answers that won't start bar feuds (maybe). Am I right?
The IBM Institute for Business Value has kicked off the 2013 analytics survey (the fourth in the series).
This year's study will explore the capabilities needed to transform today's vast array of data sources and digital technologies into a value-creating competitive advantage.
Basically, we're looking to get feedback from you as to what it takes (or doesn't take) to create value from analytics.
By the way, the 2012 Executive Summary is available if you want to see some of the results from last year.
The current survey will run from June 12 through July 5, 2013 so please make some time to complete it before the cutoff date.
For taking the time to participate in the survey, you'll be receiving a copy of the study once it's released (October).
As for me, in the next few days my reply will be, "Go Speat!"
