Insight from Analytics – A “hyperlocal social commerce marketplace”? Live business plan!

Insights from Analytics is the next battleground for technology to enable through algorithms so entire ecosystem stakeholders from consumers down to the upstream of supplychains make decisions when necessary.

Everyone of the average 10,000 parts of the automobile is now mapped in real-time to a hyperlocal social commerce. How every part or kit or assembly suddenly moves from Fast to Slow or Non-moving, or why certain parts have hit re-order levels or why certain parts are in a specific area(s) suddenly fast moving when they are off-season parts and the reverse in another 100 towns and cities and why suddenly certain  consumers are asking for new kits and increasing their cost of insurance and why all of a sudden the ability to order and the ability to deliver for tier 2 and tier 3 suppliers in the chain has increased when the parts they manufacture are in-season? The variables and their permutations and combinations are in the millions. How do we address a multi-billion dollar market with a “Hyperlocal Social Commerce Marketplace”?

Is this a market opportunity?

The local dealers and service providers are all bidding for these contracts in real-time in reverse auction to get these contracts.

So what just happened?

The ability of analytics to provide insights to consumers, insurance providers, dealers, OEMs, supplychains, service providers, car rental companies, et al all integrated into a real-time marketplace based on the IP of algorithms that are able to crowdsource data such as constant location, are of driving, time of day, etc. and link to the ecosystem that creates an aggregated social commerce based marketplace for the entire auto industry that creates jobs, saves millions of dollars for the ecosystem and impacts consumers, all with the bottom-line impact.

This is where the real value of “Insight” is. Analytics provides the inputs, scenarios, risks, cost impact, etc. where people take decisions and the results are the obvious. This is where the IP of an ecosystem really is. Insight, NOT DATA.

Another example of how retailers BAM as well as online are working to solve the First Mile (Last Mile in their DNA) challenge.

Now replicate this to farmers in Africa or America, eCommerce marketplaces like eBay or Amazon, or providing decision making on healthcare to people effected by Dengue in Bangalore and Beijing or US Marines in Djibouti taking decisions on piracy on a mission. The key is the insights and this is the next battleground. The winner. Entire ecosystems from consumes to upstream. The business models around the these insights is the competitive advantage.

This is a live business plan. 🙂
