Praise for mind+machine

"Mind+Machine is a thought–provoking exploration of data analytics as they stand now. Marc introduces and develops several game–changing concepts, like the Efficient Frontier, Ring of Knowledge, and Use Case Methodology, showing how to apply them for the best possible return on investment. These ideas should be the cornerstone of every organization′s approach to data analytics. Written for the generalist with plenty of real–world examples, it′s a fascinating read that I couldn′t put down."
Stefan Arn, Global Head of Technology for UBS Wealth Management and UBS Switzerland and Group IT Head for Strategic Regulatory Initiatives

"Mind+Machine provides a much needed antidote for the business leader looking for actionable business insights in a world of information and technology overload. Based on his credentials as adviser to many of the world′s top banks, corporations, and professional services firms, as well founder of two industry–disrupting businesses, Marc has a unique perspective on how to combine human expertise with technology to deliver high ROI business results. He simplifies a complex subject, and his approach is supported by over 40 accessible and insightful case studies. A compelling and accessible guide for decision makers and business leaders seeking sustainable competitive advantage in their markets."
Mark Bidwell, founder of The Innovation Ecosystem, chairman of BC Platforms and director at Terramera

"A very interesting read. It demystifies data analytics with lots of real–world examples on use–cases, best practices and insights from industry. It also offers refreshing business angles of examining the value of analytics in terms of ROI and ′so–what′. Though it is targeted at top managers and decision makers, I find it to be a good read for technical staff, researchers and data analysts. I will use it as part of my research into big data and social media analytics."
Professor Tat–Seng Chua, KITHCT Chair Professor at the School of Computing, National University of Singapore
