Business intelligence and analytics leaders need to embrace four trends, including the growing popularity of business applications on mobile devices, according to analysts at Gartner.
Gartner says BI and analytics leaders should embrace the technology, market and management trends “that will transform the field within a few years”.
Gartner has identified four key BI predictions to help organisations plan for 2011 and beyond:
– By 2013, 33 per cent of BI functionality will be consumed via handheld devices
– By 2014, 30 per cent of analytic applications will use in-memory functions to add scale and computational speed. Applications will use proactive, predictive and forecasting capabilities
– By 2014, 40 per cent of spending on business analytics will go to system integrators, not software vendors
– By 2013, 15 per cent of BI deployments will combine BI, collaboration and social software into decision-making environments
