The Bernard Marr Series


First there was the age of mechanical production, then there was electricity, and in recent times we’ve seen the digital revolution transform the way we live our lives. But now there’s a new resource that’s rapidly becoming the world’s most valuable asset.

Today, we’re in the fourth industrial revolution – the era where the barriers between machine and man disappear, and data is at its core.  

Every day, organisations produce masses of data, but it’s what they choose to do with it that sets industry leaders apart from those who simply follow.


We’ve partnered with leading author and speaker, Bernard Marr, to bring you a series of thought-provoking whitepapers focused on how to get the most out of your data to compete in your ever-evolving industry.

Each paper focuses on a key stage within the data maturity journey, exploring the opportunities that can be unlocked, the challenges that may crop up, and how to progress on your journey to becoming more driven by data.


When you can anticipate what’s likely to happen in the future, you can take appropriate action, deliver better business results and gain serious competitive advantages. Therein lies the beauty of predictive analytics.

In the first of the whitepaper series, this paper explores real world examples and gives practical advice on how organisations can harness predictive analytics to:

  1. Predict trends and customer needs

  2. Optimise and automate business processes

  3. Improve functional decision making

In the second paper of our Bernard Marr whitepaper series, this paper embarks on a whistle-stop tour through the five stages of the data maturity journey. This will help you to:

  • Assess where your business is at right now

  • See how you could advance to the next stage

  • Gain practical advice for progressing your own journey

Every business can advance with analytics - every business can move from spreadsheets to more exciting, cutting-edge analytics techniques.
