Gartner: BI Will Be Consumed Heavily on Mobiles in Two Years

Gartner have released a statment saying that business intelligence (BI) and analytics leaders need to embrace four trends that are set to challenge traditional assumptions about these technology areas. “The market for BI and analytics is undergoing gradual evolution,” said Neil Chandler, research director at Gartner. “By 2014, the metamorphosis of BI from IT-owned and report-centric will be virtually complete for a large number of organizations. These organizations will change what types of BI and analytics they use. They will change how they procure them and where they procure them from, and they will modify how information feeds decision making. BI and analytics leaders should embrace the technology, market and management trends that will transform this field within a few years.”

As part of its Predicts 2011 body of research, Gartner has identified four key BI predictions to help organizations plan for 2011 and beyond:

1- By 2013, 33 percent of BI functionality will be consumed via handheld devices. 2- By 2014, 30 percent of analytic applications will use in-memory functions to add scale and computational speed. By 2014, 30 percent of analytic applications will use proactive, predictive and forecasting capabilities. 3- By 2014, 40 percent of spending on business analytics will go to system integrators, not software vendors. 4- By 2013, 15 percent of BI deployments will combine BI, collaboration and social software into decision-making environments.
