Business intelligence has always been a technology-driven process for analysing data and extrapolating actionable information to help executives, managers and other corporate end users make informed business decisions. However, 2020 will witness an unparalleled advancement in business intelligence, fuelled by coronavirus pandemic, economic slowdown, and the overall need to evolve in order to survive.
Let’s look at the 3 enterprise business intelligence trends that can benefit your business in 2020.
1. Growing appreciation for data discovery, visualisation and quality management
In the new normal, relying on bare-bones solutions like Google Analytics no longer cuts it. The flourishing market of IOT (internet of things) combined with the increasing use of online resources serves as a rich avenue for consumer data collection. But often large magnitudes of data come with higher risks of errors and resultant low quality reports. According to Gartner, world’s largest research and advisory company, poor data quality is estimated to cost organisations an average of $15 million per year in losses. Realising that they cannot afford such a loss at this point, most companies will grow to appreciate and invest time and resources in not just acquiring the data, but also implementing advanced data processes to distribute the data effectively and visualise it for an easier extraction of insights. All in all, business intelligence applications that are easy to use, agile, reduce time to insight, and allow handling of a high volume and variety of data will witness a boom.
2. The widespread introduction of augmented analytics and collaborative intelligence practices
According to Gartner, augmented analytics is one of the top data analytics trends to watch out for in 2020, and we agree! Augmented analytics automates the digging and highlighting of key insights to optimise decision making. This is accomplished in a fraction of the time when compared to manual approaches and done in a manner that allows everyone to use analytics programs without needing a high-level computer science degree. In this way, augmented analytics plays into the rise of collaborative intelligence that enables teams to set up business intelligence alerts, share public or embedded dashboards with a flexible level of interactivity- across a plethora of devices. The focus here is collaborative decision making which can only happen if information is presented in an easily digestible manner through a combination of tools including social media, web 2.0 and business intelligence tools.
3. The love for artificial intelligence continues
We always save the best for last. Artificial intelligence tops the list of buzzwords in 2019 and for a good reason. As per Gartner’s 2020 Strategic Technology Trends report, this year artificial intelligence (AI) will become a foundational catalyst for advanced process automation and human augmentation and engagement. Low code application development is not new, but a confluence of digital disruptions has led to an influx of no code tools to meet rising demand for rapid application development platforms. By 2024, low code and no code application development will be responsible for more than 65% of application development activity. Also, by 2024, 75% of large enterprises will be using at least four low code (or no code) development tools for both IT application development and citizen development initiatives.
