A bit more Gartner insight today –their new Top 10 Trends in Data and Analytics 2021 report is out. Data and analytics will morph into a core business function this year. The analyst views it as a shared business asset connected to business results, and will break down those data silos.
Why do we care?
This kind of report cane make me smile – let’s rephrase that. This technology will actually become part of the business rather than something off to the side. We should be a little self aware sometimes – myself included – about speaking in babble.
This should be viewed as as success – if a technology is just a business function, it’s mainstream. We’ve been at this discussion log enough around data and analytics. Now customers expect it. That’s good… and a higher bar for some.
