Democratization of Data became a Reality

Organizations are now empowering more users to fully leverage advanced and predictive analytics to “democratize” their data and bring insights to the masses through interactive visual dashboards. Democratization is going to be the future of data-driven decision making.

Mobile BI Trending

Mobile UI has emerged as the new normal. 2015 saw mobile business intelligence becoming must-to-have items for more and more BI teams. Mobile revolution isn't about devices, it is about data. With the increasing use of smartphones and other mobile devices, the interest in mobile BI is also on the rise.

Big data and IoT took the center stage this year. The impact of IoT is unprecedented in terms of data exchange and collection. 2015 saw IoT giving rise to new business models that could alter the basis of competition.

Growth of Cloud and Hybrid Solution

Cloud analytics is now being used by businesses because of its scalability and easy access. According to this report, the cloud analytics market is expected to grow from $7.5 Billion in 2015 to $23.1 Billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 25.1% during the forecast period.

Self-Service Analytics Spawns new Governance Models

While business intelligence landscape has transformed from static reporting to interactive, self-service data which can be accessed by users across organization, the governance models also underwent transformation. IT-centric and business-centric governance models evolved and we saw organizations investigating what governance means in a world of self-service analytics. New federated governance processes and best practices are slowly emerging to keep data secure while letting business people get answers from that data.

It is all Data-Driven
