Overall Results/comments I was only involved with the project mid-way as I only joined the company recently. Though I was new to the project, I was able to appreciate what the project deliverables can potentially help the company in. Data analytics and predictive analysis are buzz words in the commercial world these days. How to collect, how to make sense of the data, and how to package it such that users can have an accessible and clear platforms to view the insights are key business challenges faced by many retailers. On these parts, Team analyteaka had exceeded my expectations on several occasions. I started off having mid expectations of the abilities of the students. Towards the end of the project, my perception has changed. The team had demonstrated the ability to comprehend our business challenge quickly, and promptly adjusted their deliverables. The final results showed the professional and hard work that was put into the project by the students. I was impressed with their professionalism as well as the standard of work, which are comparable to professional consultants in the market. SMU had done very well in grooming, developing and instilling key values in these students that I have confident will shape them very well to succeed in their future endeavors in the commercial world. Well done Team analyteaka! Well done SMU!
