As businesses become more diverse and complex, so do their associated business analytics systems. Imperatives like the need to build near real-time visibility, a data-driven culture, and digitalization have forced many organizations to invest in many data and analytics tools and technologies.

The abovementioned trends, along with the rapid emergence of fields like data science, the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Machine Learning (ML) algorithms, and the rapid adoption of cloud computing, are disrupting the field of business analytics, and more specifically, enterprise analytics. We touched upon these aspects in our reports, The Future of Business Intelligence and Analytics in The Cloud. BI tools have been around for more than four decades and, like all other business analytics tools, are evolving to catch up with business trends in the digital age.

So we invited Dave Henry, SVP-Strategic Alliances from Pyramid Analytics, to share his in-depth perspectives on this. Watch this part of the video discussion in this article.
