“A data-driven culture doesn’t happen overnight, and its proponents will face many obstacles on this journey. For example, data initiatives tend to be confined to IT departments, which may bristle at efforts to launch efforts outside of their domains. Plus, many analytics efforts tend to be one-off efforts attached to specific applications.”
