“Use cases are gaining more and more importance when it comes to the exploration of ideas, requirements analysis and prioritization of tasks in analytics and Big Data projects. To identify, structure and prioritize the most promising use cases we recommend combining two common approaches; ideation (top-down) and data-driven (bottom-up).The ideation approach leverages innovation and creativity to come up with new ideas. Methods like Design Thinking help subject matter experts to identify and formulate potentially beneficial use cases.
