@Beth    I see your point but I do tend to see questions of business to be finite for some reason. The answer can be contain if you "widen your net" so to speak, but what if the answer you are looking for cannot be contained ?   In other words, lies in the realm of the infinite ?

@Louis -- let me put the question back to you. Isn't there always a business question for which you're using analytics to find an answer? So you don't know what you're looking for ... except for a solution to the business challenge.

@Beth @Noreen    Is it possible to not know what you are looking for ?   I mean in purely explorative analytics, couldn't this be possible ?   Easy to use the old "signs of life"...etc.   But is there a level beyond that ?

Just wondering of couse......

Hi Noreen, I take that to mean the analytical team has to keep in mind the business question it's trying to answer -- to stay focused, and ask the right questions of the data.

"The challenges from business perspectives are for ourselves -- we have to be able to define the information that is needed to meet our objectives." How do you interpret that?
