Our news and views relating to Data Analytics, Big Data, Machine Learning, and the world of Credit.
I have the honour of curating the last of this year’s topic-specific Top Blog Collections. The blogs in my collection all focus on the customer, as we all should(!).
As we mentioned in our previous posts where we compiled lists of our top 2017 blogs, we are switching it up this year. Instead of compiling our usual list of Top 10 blog posts on data analytics, we are instead giving you a shorter, but more focussed top blogs selection– and not just one, but five of them! Our data suggested that our most popular blogs were very clearly grouped in broad categories, and we’ve decided to give you the best Principa blogs of 2017, by topic.
Data science continues to be a hot topic in many large firms globally. 2017 saw data science subjects such as R vs. Python, deep learning, natural language, gamification, AI and machine learning being arguably the most topical.

I have been lucky enough to work with and for various customer facing financial services organisations over the years. One of the benefits of this experience is the chance to compare and contrast how these organisations operate. Based on some of these observations, I have sketched out a generalised framework that describes the key functional actions of the modern customer-facing organisation. Meet the 3-I Raven*.
