In this discussion we will focus on a few such use cases within the enterprise. One area is the sales process. Here analytics can optimize the design of the sales organization, help diagnose problems, and direct the sales effort effectively. The other are is where ideas are developed, namely the R&D stage.

Topic: Account level profitability in the banking analytics trajectory, in Indian and US geographies
Abstract: Account level profitability has been the fundamental analytics block for most customer servicing industries. It continues to be as relevant today as it was a decade back. Unlike Analytics driven by methodologies and algorithms, ALP continues to depend upon experienced business analysts to build a reliabe framework and sustain it. Challenges faced in this task are also not pure data problems or forecasting constraints, but are multi-fold. This discussion is aimed to lay down some of these nuances based upon my experiences in Indian and US banking set ups. While there is applicability for ALP across the customer lifecycle, will also benefit to know where it is a case if a forcing a wrong sized shoe.
