Determining if it makes financial and operational sense to apply in-depth analytics on your data is, perhaps, the easiest step associated with the application of analytical techniques to solve real-world problems. Implementation challenges can seem like leaping hurdles as you start the analytical process and discover that there are multiple paths, which must be explored before finding success. We will present a real-world use case which will take you through our journey in Analytics, the challenges encountered and why we believe we found the right formula to make it work for this specific use case. The use case discussed will be addressing stuck pipe - understanding why it happened, and how to predict and prevent its occurrence. We will also discuss how other factors, associated with applying the analytics, can benefit other business use cases.
