Impacts and Recommendations

  • To make analytics more actionable and pervasively deployed, BI and analytics professionals must make analytics more invisible and transparent to their users — through easy natural-language interfaces for exploring data and through embedded analytic applications at the point of decision or action
  • The growing volume of real-time data and the reduced time for decision making, are driving companies to implement real-time operational intelligence systems that make supervisors and operations staff more effective
  • Increasing competition, cost and regulatory pressures will motivate business leaders to adopt more prescriptive analytics, making business decisions smarter and more repeatable and reducing personnel costs
