The idea of automation means different things to different people. For some organizations, particularly those that operate well on defined processes and rules-driven decision making, automation saves a great deal of time. This is either because it can create a trickledown effect of automation allowing other systems to take appropriate action without human intervention, or alert business users when intervention is needed.
In complex, real time environments such as programmatic advertising, the automated processing of information into insights, and insights into action is viewed as essential to realizing opportunities before they pass brands by.
Predictive analytics is no panacea. It does, however, have utility in specific industries and applications within certain companies. When applied to businesses that perform maintenance and quality assurance, predictive analytics has proven remarkably effective. For example, predictive maintenance models can accurately forecast the chances of essential equipment breaking down while quality assurance models are able to identify and prevent defects in products and services. Risks of this type are knowable—they can be modeled based on facts and measured by variables like the.composition of materials or the number of widgets produced.
COVID-19 has exposed exposing the limitations of predictive analytics in the healthcare industry. Routine medical treatments deferred due to the pandemic generated unexpected savings. However, it also creates uncertainty for hospitals, healthcare providers, and companies’ healthcare plans. Models used to forecast health benefit costs based on patient claims are not able to account for the pandemic or its impact. This leaves companies guessing whether to push for lower premiums based on fewer employee claims or plans for increased costs due to employee medical conditions worsening since they went untreated.
The global risk landscape is continually evolving. Traditional risk models and basic predictive analytics are rendered ineffective when applied to Social Risk. And while some companies have made efforts to adapt, most companies are not prepared or equipped to manage these new threats. Perceived or real, today’s risks pose a new set of challenges for decision-makers. Business leaders and companies must take a practical approach when creating their risk strategies.
