We just published a new white paper on Framing Analytic Requirements.
This paper shows how you can achieve analytical, data-driven decisions by using decision modeling and the Decision Model and Notation (DMN) standard to frame your analytical requirements. The value proposition of analytics is almost always to improve decision-making. Whether you are data mining, building predictive analytic models, designing dashboards or creating reports, being explicit about the decision-making to be improved is a necessary first step and DMN is a great format for building this models.
