[Links of the Day] 15/06/2017 : Corporate Wargaming, ScatterText , Forecasting and BigData

  • Scattertext : Nice and easy to use tool allowing to find independent terms in corpora and present them in an attractive way via interactive scatter plot.
  • Forecasting in the light of Big Data : the authors look at how forecasting is changing in the light of new tool and data collection capability emerge. And as often the authors suggest that the best approach would be to combine model and quantitative analysis in order to obtain the best forecasting strategy. However, I am afraid that this would require a new framework and also training data scientist to leverage this two opposite methodology correctly. 
  • Competitive Wargaming and Simulations for Business Forecasting & Analytics : slide deck providing a good insight on how wargaming can help shape the decision process and strategy of a company. However, like any tool, it's about as much about the preparation and how to leverage the outcome of the game itself.
