The abundance of data, the popularity and the growth of the cloud, advances in analytics, new user experience design and business models have converged. The result of this convergence is the imperative for everyone to make decisions based on facts and data. Where once organizations relied on data scientists or IT to prepare and interpret data, now marketing, sales, operations, finance and HR professionals want to get answers they need from all types of data—on their own. According to a recent business survey conducted by the International Data Corporation and Computerworld, only a small fraction of businesses use analytics tools as part of their decision-making. Considering that analytics enables people to use refined and trusted data to discover insights, predict outcomes, visualize results, create reports, and collaborate with others, the fact that so few organizations use it indicates that it’s time for revolution in analytics technology.
