From the foreword: ""A rigorous, professional approach to digital analytics requires the types of management approaches that are laid out in this book... Judah Phillips has been an advocate of these serious disciplines for a long time, but now the world is ready to adopt them--and the book comes along just in time... and this one is distinctive in a number of ways and brings into the digital analytics space a sophistication in both data management and data analysis that is not often found...."""-Thomas H. Davenport, author of "Competing on Analytics "and "Analytics at Work," professor at Harvard Business School and Babson College, and cofounder of the International Institute for Analytics ""The allure of Big Data is immense.

Let Judah show you how to build an organization where Big Data's primary imperative is to drive Big Action.""-Avinash Kaushik, author of "Web Analytics 2.0 "and "Web Analytics: An Hour a Day"" "Generate Maximum Economic Value from Leading-Edge Digital Analytics and Data Science
