These data are obtained from the IT system of the business, or are stored in the business outside the central IT system (in Excel or Access files, for example), or are bought or retrieved outside the business, or are calculated from earlier data (indicators, ratios, changes over time). If the aim is to construct a predictive model, it will also be necessary to find a second type of data, namely the historical data on the phenomenon to be predicted.

Clearly, the choice of the statistical operation used to aggregate the ‘product’ data for each customer is important. Where risk is concerned, for example, very different results may be obtained, depending on whether the number of debit days of a customer is defined as the mean or the maximum number of debit days for his current accounts. The choice of each operation must be carefully thought out and must have a functional purpose. For risk indicators, it is generally the most serious situation of the customer that is considered, not his average situation.

On the other hand, if a variable is anomalous for too many individuals, this variable is unsuitable for use. Be careful about numerical variables: we must not confuse a significant value of 0 with a value set to 0 by default because no information is provided. ’ in SAS. Remember that a variable whose reliability cannot be assured must never be used in a model. A model with one variable missing is more useful than a model with a false variable. The same applies if we are uncertain whether a variable will always be available or always correctly updated.
