New Study: Analytics for Public Sector
Adam Gartenberg    

The IBM Institute for Business Value has just released a new study, "The Power of Analytics for Public Sector."  

In 2010 the IBV interviewed over 100 public sector executives from around the world to understand their approaches to building analytics competency and surface an initial framework relevant to the public context.

Some of the highlighted best practices from the study include:
1.        Leadership -  Smarter decision making in the public sector is more important than ever – immense complexity is expanding the roles for analytics.
2.        The data paradox is the #1 barrier to more systemic analytics adoption and use – and with immense complexity, more severe than the private sector.
3.        Making better choices within constraints remains the top priority today and in the next three years; leaders want to inform those choices with new, more predictive insights. Though the most experienced leaders are much farther along, they too will have to continue to deepen their analytics competency and innovate because nothing stands still.
4.        Analytics talent is more concentrated than it is embedded throughout the organization; and most of their time is spent collecting and organizing data vs. influencing the problem solving with their analysis.

In other public sector news, IBM announced yesterday that it is working with the City University of New York (CUNY) to develop new analytics technology that will help K-12 public schools in New York City reduce their energy consumption.  The new analytical software tracks, forecasts, simulate and optimizes energy consumption in buildings.  The project will provide information and skills to help facility staff and property managers achieve significant energy savings, greenhouse gas emission reductions and cost savings.  (Press Release:  City University of New York and IBM to Reduce Energy Consumption in Public School Buildings)

Those of you who attended the IOD conference back in 2011 were treated to an interview with author Michael Lewis and Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane, of Moneyball fame (amongst many other achievements). One comment that's stuck with me was a question tossed in at the very end of the interview. Billy Beane was asked how it's possible to still get a competitive advantage from the type of statistical advantages he discovered, now that everyone was on to the approach (and, as he comm [read] Keywords: ibm notes development
