An analytics initiative focused originally on a single task can spawn an enterprisewide, cyclical approach to data-driven decisions based on advanced analytics. Consider what is being done in healthcare today, and how organizations are moving from base -- or descriptive -- analytics toward more advanced modeling, such as linear regression, neural networks, and predictive modeling.
Suppose your analytics initiative starts with a focus on combating healthcare payment fraud. Now consider how those same tools can apply to so many other applications throughout the organization -- sales, claims processing, even medical affairs. It's a model that can be carried out in any number of companies and sectors.
