Through our research, we identified nine levers that together enable organisations to create value from an ever-growing volume of data from a variety of sources – value that results from insights derived and actions taken at every level of the organisation.

By examining the leaders, the top 19 percent who identified as substantially outperforming their industry and market, the study offers insight into how these nine levers are crucial in gaining optimal value from analytics. Three key insights emerged:
