  • We believe in the creation of socio-technical work environments for improving productivity. Analytics is a strategic capability that the organization can have and develop for competing. Analytics work requires information systems support, modeling process for data transformation into knowledge. Analytics refers to the use of statistical tools, operations research and information systems to develop enterprise capacity.Companies are competing to optimize their performance on analytical capabilities, which represents getting access to quantitative expertise, capable technology environment and appropriate data.

    IQAnalytics: Project Examples

    Analytics helps your organization to make decisions based on evidence

  • Flowers growth factors
  • This example is applicable to different plantations. The purpose was to identify the best option for plastic cover for the farm´s greenhouses (critical variable) based on factors such as growth, area,luminosity, temperature and so on.

  • Service Evaluation for ATM's
  • Evaluation of service in new banking is crucial. Customer´s behavior changes according to the needs. The demand for services have different segments and the solutions need to be organized according to these segments. ATM´s service evaluation includes variables that are related to technogy, people´s knowledge of using, adaptation, localization, security etc.

  • Bank Branch Office service
  • This refers to the creation of an information system to feed a service dashboard. In some cases the look of the offece is very important and in other cases the most importnat could be the waiting lanes.

  • Bank risk classification

    Modeling Process

    The risk modelling process is a mathematical and conceptual process. The mathematical model (Caldwell and Ram 1999) starts from a problem and variables definition, introducing observations, data, description of the relationships among variables (generally equations and basic data models), assumptions (experience-knowledge) and with people’s knowledge produces solutions-outcomes (required knowledge for solving the model) that can be used for the specific problem solution or with additional knowledge applicable to several problems.more

    Research

    There are many common points with positivism in the KM and ERM disciplines. The research in several cases in areas of risk analysis is quantitative and based on data analysis. In KM there are many tools from data base structures, data-mining and statistical modeling that have been implemented based on a positivist research approach. In KM there are different points of view, based on computing or human approaches or a combination of both. In any case the positivism and realism paradigms are influencing the research. more
