If we want to see your data impact trends, then we need to look at metrics rather than just tracking data. The thing is that we have to track the data to produce the metrics. But it’s seeing the trends in metrics that really drives business outcomes and behavioural change .
When it comes to wearables, Is “10,000 steps walked today” actually just a vanity metric? Will it really make me change my behavior and lose weight? It is all still too bleeding-edge. Like the early days of business analytics, are we still just presenting data to people rather than giving them meaningful metrics that will change behavior.
