For the second year, MicroStrategy has surveyed business intelligence and analytics decision makers from around the world about the current state of their organization’s analytics initiatives and their plans for the future. Respondents were asked about benefits realized, challenges to success, priorities, and investments—and most importantly, if current initiatives to create and deliver on a data-driven culture and business were moving forward. As in the previous year’s survey, respondents had no doubt about the importance of data and analytics when it came to digital transformation (see figure 1). Yet, this year’s analysis uncovered that, as the reality of 2020 and a new decade of accelerated innovation set in, a smaller set of leaders were confident in their progress to date.

Today, despite massive investments in data, IT infrastructure, and analytics software, the adoption of analytics continues to lag behind. In fact, according to Gartner, most organizations fail to hit the 30% mark—meaning more than 70% of people at most organizations are going without access to the critical information needed to perform to the best of their abilities. What’s stopping organizations from breaking through the 30% barrier and driving the pervasive adoption of intelligence? Simple. The majority of existing tools only cater to users who are analytically inclined—the analysts, data scientists, and architects of the world. The other 70%—the people making the operational decisions daily within a business—simply lack the time, skill, or desire to seek out data and intelligence on their own. HyperIntelligenceTM helps organizations operationalize their existing investments and arm everyone across the organization with intelligence. Whether it’s a salesperson looking to close a

A&BI platforms are transitioning from delivering simple, manual self-service to supporting more advanced, automated analytic use cases via growing, augmented, ML-driven capabilities. Data and analytics leaders should enable broader use cases to increase their investments’ business impact. Analytics and business intelligence (A&BI) platforms exhibit differences in functional capabilities, particularly in their support for advanced analytics, data source connectivity and embedded functionality. As the market matures, the capabilities required to build and deliver user-friendly analytics dashboards are the least differentiated. The trend toward assisting users with augmented data discovery functionality continues, but many products still lack enough support for this critical capability. When viewed across the whole span of capabilities, significant differences remain between competing platforms and, therefore, also between which are most appropriate for a given use case. In some cases, th

Over the past ten years, IT personnel costs have risen faster than hardware and software investments. IT services have not improved process-wise and still require as much manpower, if not more, to operate now as they did in the past. As firms spend 76% of their IT budget on maintenance and support, they will naturally invest in BSM solutions that will reduce costs, enable ITIL, and provide an optimal ROI.

Why your data catalog won’t deliver significant ROI According to Gartner, organizations that provide access to a curated catalog of internal and external data assets will derive twice as much business value from their analytics investments by 2020 than those that do not. That’s a ringing endorsement of data catalogs, and a growing number of enterprises seem to agree. In fact, the global data catalog market is expected to grow from US$210.0 million in 2017 to US$620.0 million by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 24.2%. Why such large and intensifying demand for data catalogs? The primary driver is that many organizations are working to modernize their data platforms with data lakes, cloud-based data warehouses, advanced analytics and various SaaS applications in order to grow profitable digital initiatives. To support these digital initiatives and other business imperatives, organizations need more reliable, faster access to their data. However, modernizing data plat
