· Data availability and quality – the most dependable data source for Group level forecasting contains around 6 years of monthly data, which has also been subject to a number of partial restatements and adjustments, meaning that the majority of forecasting applications will be closer to statistical models, rather than deep learning. However, richer datasets can be found in particular sites / business areas, so these all need to come together in a coherent, consistent framework
