January 1st, 2011

Gartner introduced Pattern-Based Strategy as a new discipline in 2009, with a focus on helping business leaders to move from reacting to events that had major effects on business strategy and operations, to proactively seeking and adapting to patterns that might indicate an emerging event (threats and opportunities). In this Predicts 2011 research, we explore how these technologies and business practices are taking hold and will grow in businesses during the next few years.

Key Findings
  • Three critical technologies will be increasingly integrated and adopted for pattern seeking and modeling in the next three years – predictive analytics tools, complex-event processing (CEP) engines and social network analysis (SNA) tools.
  • Gartner data on economic and other performance metrics indicates that organizations pursuing aggressive information management, combined with pattern detection analysis, are all outperforming their peers, based on various performance metrics, by more than 25%.
  • Most organizations measure performance; they don't manage it.
Vendors of business intelligence (BI), middleware suites, business process management (BPM) suites and CRM systems:
  • Consider investing in predictive analytics, CEP and SNA technologies to meet the demand for continuous intelligence internally and externally.
User enterprises:
  • Understand if and how vendors can help with business change management to model and adapt to opportunities and risks that patterns might be indicating.
