The biggest areas in which I see opportunities for innovation are: Broader and better support for heterogeneous data sources, embracing the mobile user base regardless of on-premise or cloud-based deployment, more predictive analytics that are geared toward real-time decision making, addressing the ever growing need to include social media, and even making devices we use and rely on today smarter through the use of BI. Imagine appliances that are semi-self aware and can inform you of pending maintenance and provide information about how they’re used, cars that can let you know of upcoming traffic, adverse road conditions, impending storms, etc. And even toys that will interact with and help educate our children in real-time. The primary point is that we’re headed for another information explosion where even the everyday users of systems will be provided with, and the beneficiaries of, analytics done across vast pockets of information. The innovations surrounding the use of what’s called ‘Big Data’ today are small and will pale in comparison to the many innovations in the areas that I’ve listed. Rest assured that every innovation we see between now and then will itself lead to even more opportunities. It’s an exciting time to be in the BI space. Read complete post »
