HorizonWatching 2012 Trend Report: Analytics

I’ve posted a trend report on Analytics to Slideshare and embedded that deck at the bottom of this post. 

The importance of having a well defined analytics strategy is becoming much more important for all types of enterprises.  It’s important because our appetite for creating, gathering, and storing data continues to grow and grow and grow.

With all that data being created, collected and stored with our IT infrastructures, Business leaders are yearning for deeper knowledge and insights on all aspects of their business and they know that the information they need is available within all the data flowing through the company IT systems.  The business leaders want the capability to be able to harvest insights that will help them make better decisions.  Increasingly, they analytic tools that can provide predictive insights in real time.

While information overload was once a barrier to good decision making, today’s information management and analytics technologies can make it a real benefit.  Successful implementation of analytics capabilities provide value and can help companies create a competitive advantage. 

The slides provide an overview on the Analytics trend.  Summary information about the Analytics trend is provided along with many links to additional resources.   The slides are meant to be read/studied and the links are there for you to continue your learning.  You may want to view the slides in slideshow mode so you can easily follow the links.
