Success Stories


Anomaly Detection

Maintenance

Anomaly detection predicts when critical equipment parts will go bad – preventing failures and downtime.

Maintenance is a tricky business: you’re always treading that fine line between cost optimization and risk of equipment malfunction – with potentially catastrophic consequences.

Even modern predictive maintenance techniques benefit from data analytics: by knowing when the readings from sensors on critical machinery components are anomalous, failures can be predicted with enough lead time to take cost effective remedial action…


Competitive Pricing

Analysis

Guided analytics provided automated pricing insights and suggestions for achieving the optimal price.

Great pricing decisions are critical for every company. A key input into pricing decisions is benchmarking against competitors using market research data. However, to be actionable on that data, one must be able to identify key competitors to review related pricing indexes and performance. In many companies there is a large range of products that need to be priced. Therefore, providing automated pricing insights and suggestions can be game changing.

This story demonstrates how a Guided Analytics Pricing Application assists analysts on various levels. Firstly, it automatically identifies key competitors based on pricing. Secondly, the selected baseline product can be benchmarked against these competitors to establish an understanding of its relation to the trade channel and market. A key industry performance metric is the price index – the competitor’s price compared to the…


Customer Satisfaction

Umbrellas

Understanding customer satisfaction with text mining reviews and Net Promoter Scores (NPS).

The NPS, together with satisfaction ratings of customer touchpoints, is part of Customer Experience Management (CEM) in many companies. The NPS is not only used to evaluate customer satisfaction, but also to understand what pain points should be eliminated. By combining insights from sentiment and NPS score analysis, the CEM team can make better decisions when allocating resources to solve specific issues.

This story demonstrates how a Guided Analytics Customer Satisfaction Application enables the CEM team and other analysts to understand customer sentiment. The data science team creates a KNIME workflow using KNIME Analytics Platform and deploys it to KNIME Server. Analysts are then able to interact with various touchpoints and…
