"The SAS Information Evolution Model has helped many organizations become analytical competitors. This very useful book provides considerably more detail about each step of the model, and explains how tools and structures like centers of excellence can help organizations advance."

"In the Age of Discovery, the most important voices were not those who told us that a new world existed. The leaders who made a real difference were those who drew the maps that [a] showed us how to get to that new world and [b] told us what we should do when we arrived. Aiman Zeid is such a voice. His book is low on hyperbole and high on practical advice. Zeid is the Lewis & Clark of the analytical age. He has made the journey to the analytical frontier and has returned with invaluable lessons on business transformation."
Futurist, Executive Director, and Dean of the IT Leadership Academy
