Investigate Rather Than Calculate:

Have the numbers work for You… And not the other way around

In today’s data-driven world, businesses often rely on traditional calculation methods to analyze data and make decisions. However, these methods have limitations and may not always provide the insights needed to drive success.

By leveraging technology and adopting an investigative mindset, businesses can uncover hidden insights, identify opportunities, and make informed decisions that drive growth and innovation.

As businesses collect more data than ever before, the challenge lies not in the quantity of data, but in the ability to extract meaningful insights from it. Traditional calculation methods often fall short in this regard, as they prioritize computation over investigation.

Amino allows for an investigative approach to data analysis, where businesses focus on understanding the underlying patterns and relationships in their data rather than simply crunching numbers.

Let’s dive deep into the concept of investigative analysis, where businesses delve deeper into their data to uncover insights that may not be immediately apparent through traditional means by shifting the focus from calculation to investigation.

The Limitations of Traditional Calculation Methods

Traditional calculation methods, such as statistical analysis and quantitative modeling, have several limitations, including:

Focus on Numbers:

Traditional methods prioritize numerical accuracy over understanding the underlying factors driving the data.

Narrow Scope:

Calculation methods may overlook important variables or relationships that are not captured in the data.

Lack of Context:

Calculations may provide results without context, making it difficult to interpret and apply findings to real-world scenarios.


Traditional methods may not easily adapt to changing data or incorporate qualitative insights into the analysis.

The Investigative Approach

Amino’s investigative approach to data analysis emphasizes understanding the context, relationships, and patterns within the data. Rather than focusing solely on numbers, businesses take a holistic view of their data, asking questions, exploring hypotheses, and uncovering insights through observation and inquiry. This approach involves:

Asking the Right Questions:

Start by defining clear objectives and formulating relevant questions to guide the investigation.

Exploring Patterns and Relationships:

Use visualizations, exploratory analysis, and qualitative methods to uncover patterns and relationships within the data.

Iterative Process:

Continuously refine and revise hypotheses based on new insights and findings, iterating through the investigative process until meaningful conclusions are reached.

Incorporating Qualitative Insights:

Supplement quantitative analysis with qualitative insights, such as customer feedback, market trends, and industry knowledge, to provide context and depth to the investigation.

Leveraging Amino for Investigative Analysis:

Advancements in technology, such as big data analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, have enabled businesses to conduct more sophisticated investigative analyses. These tools provide capabilities such as:

Data Visualization:

Create interactive visualizations that help uncover patterns, trends, and anomalies within the data.

Predictive Analytics:

Use machine learning algorithms to identify predictive patterns and forecast future trends based on historical data.

Causal Analysis:

Analyze unstructured data and discover which actions actually lead to specific outcomes.

Sensors in the poultry house use IOT hubs to collect information on a variety of factors, from bird health to environmental conditions within the house but, without causal analysis, producers may not be able to use this data to help improve outcomes.

Network Analysis:

Explore relationships and connections between data points using network analysis techniques to uncover hidden patterns and dependencies.
