Mapping the Numbers in Iowa and in your workforce

February 2, 2016

CNN John KingI flipped around the channels last night listening to perspectives from the left, right and center as voters in Iowa cast the first ballots of the 2016 presidential election, which began on November 6, 2012… I ended up mesmerized by the analytical map work done by CNN’s John King as he reported the vote tally and more importantly, dissected the state county by county to predict how subsequent incoming votes would affect the totals.

I’m being very careful here to be non-political. A little red, a little blue. I’m not even going to mention the final results. I’ll just quote a Journey song Tony Soprano used to play while he cruised around Jersey. I think it’s a pretty apt description of the process:

“Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on, and on, and on”

Anyway, the predictive analytics Mr. King provided were fascinating and reminded me a little of the work we do for customers with their workforce analytics. Check out our own Gregg Gordon and some of our other big data gurus as they discuss how you can use analytics to find outliers, patterns, trends, and relationships in your workforce data. Just like on TV!
