No one knows your organization’s assets, and the processes applied to them, like your resident domain experts. So, if that’s the case, doesn’t it follow and make good sense to keep them as a focal point in the process of curating data, gaining insight, and actioning it?
It might sound rhetorical – and it should be – but unfortunately, many predictive analytics solution providers opt to target data scientists instead of in-house subject-matter experts. This is both a sign of the solution provider’s inexperience in industrial environments and an improper interpretation of how best they can help you increase your profits.
The thing is, when you build your solution to favor data scientists, you’re adding a whole other step in the process. Instead of presenting curated data in language that respects domain experts, you’re forcing organizations to solely draw on data scientists who, at some point, will still need to pass findings off to the subject-matter experts.
What’s more, once that information gets to the domain experts, they will have been outside the process long enough to disengage their involvement or sense of purpose in the effort – slowing the time to action even further. With a platform that allows domain experts and data scientists to collaborate naturally, you’re keeping the key players fully engaged and expediting impactful actions.
At the end of the day, your greatest resource is your people. No technological solution is going to replace domain experts’ experience and operation-specific knowledge. However, with the right tools, they can be more empowered in all their efforts.
Everything can be accomplished faster and with greater efficiency and accuracy by pairing the operational know-how of your domain experts, with the analytical power of an insight-drivingPredictive Operations Platform. When you draw on a solution provider that understands and respects that balance, there’s a much higher probability that greater profitability will be realized. Free your experts to innovate.
