Analytics magazine recently published an article I wrote on Operationalizing Analytics. The need to create a more industrialized process for building and deploying analytics is one I discuss regularly on the blog and in articles. As I say in the article:

Operationalizing analytics requires an industrialized process for building predictive analytic models using technology that emphasizes automation, collaboration and reuse combined with a focus on rapid deployment of predictive analytic models into operational systems.
