Self-service analytics, BI to outpace data scientists

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Self-service analytics and Business Intelligence (BI) will help non-specialists gain capabilities that will outpace professional data scientists by 2019, market research firm Gartner said on Thursday.

"The trend of digitalisation is driving demand for analytics across all areas of modern business and government," Carlie J. Idoine, Research Director at Gartner, said in a statement.

"Rapid advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and SaaS (Cloud) analytics and BI platforms are making it easier and more cost-effective than ever before for non-specialists to perform effective analysis," Idoine added.

Chief Information Officers (CIO) ranked analytics and BI as the top differentiating technology for their organisations, according to a recent survey conducted by the research firm.

Data and analytics leaders are increasingly implementing self-service capabilities to create a data-driven culture throughout their organisation, the survey added.

In large organisations, popular self-service initiatives can very rapidly expand to encompass hundreds or thousands of users.

To avoid a descent into chaos, it's crucial to identify the right organisational and process changes before starting the initiative, Gartner said.
