Analyzing the Future of Big Data

Enterprises are adjusting their approach to data management and visualization. According to forecasts by Gartner, by 2025, 70% of organizations will be shifting their focus to a small and wide data strategy.

By reducing dependency on Big Data, it will allow for more robust analytics and AI capabilities, providing companies with the ability to perform analysis on all their structured and unstructured data — regardless of where or in what format that data resides.

To reach this stage, enterprises must find a way to enable business intelligence capabilities and integrate predictive and prescriptive analytics. The end goal every organization should be aiming for is automation and AI support, leveraging analytics to identify new opportunities and automate critical business decisions across IT, sales, and marketing. Analytics benchmarking is the first step in finding the right way to get there.


What is Analytics Benchmarking?

Analytics benchmarking is a multi-faceted procedure that provides an independent perspective to help organizations understand where their analytics capabilities lie on the digital maturity curve, both in absolute and competitive terms.

The insights are based on benchmarking the client’s analytics capabilities against peers and the best in class across industries. This helps organizations learn where gaps in their analytics environment are vis-a-vis the competition, so they know where to invest their time, effort, and resources to maximize the value and performance of their IT initiatives.
