Bryan, good point -- nobody wants to see their superhero action figure turned into an executive chew toy!

Beth,

Thanks for posting this - very innovative, trendy and cool!  That being said:

Caveat to potential comic book stars - Before doing this, please consider that you will produce a document that suggests that you saved the day.  Make sure that your boss knows that you are doing this - particularly if your organization has self-identified itself as 'technological agnostic'.  If you publish that your company has a preference for SAS when another analytics vendor had bid to support your company, then expect the lawyers to get lined up outside of your door. 

The bottom line is that this is a wonderful, crazy, exciting way to promote yourself and the value added to your company.  But before you put on your superhero outfit, please be sure that you have a firm grip on the legal context in which your company uses analytic software.  If SAS was selected as part of a competitive bidding process, then this promotion could stir up some hornets.  Even if there is no proof that a success story represents bias in the selection process - you still want to be sure that your butt is covered before you publicly promote a specific vendor as being part of your company's success.  Unfortunately in our litigation-happy society, you can get in trouble for associating software vendors with corporate failures and successes.

Interesting to see someone merge comic strip with something otherwise sort of geekish like Analytics. Probably a great way to demystify the field as it should get a lot more IT professionals looking closer.

@SethBreedlove -- it'd certainly be a differentiator, that's for sure.

Winning this would a great resume tool.  Instead of answering interview questions, you could hand over your comic book and have your interview be your graphic novel.

Beth, I saw a very cool "storyboard" on this while covering Predictive Analytics World in San Francisco this week. As a matter of fact, look for some video on other storyboards created coming up.

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
