Becoming a data driven company
The market of BI is shifting from early adoption to actual implementation. It has gradually evolved from being rigid to a much more flexible, agile process, that is cloud enabled, that organizations
as well as individuals can utilize. This change has now reached Europe, with 37% of the companies performing Business Intelligence projects. Big Data is projected to be a $28.5 billion market in 2014, growing to $50.1 billion in 2015. The average business expects to spend about $8 million on Big Data related activities.
The early adopters of Business Intelligence and Big Data have gained a significant advantage. Bain & Company examined over 400 large companies and their research has shown that those with the most advanced analytics capabilities are outperforming their competitors by wide margins. Leaders in the field are twice as likely to be in the top quartile of financial performance within their industries, five times as likely to make decisions much faster than market peers and are three times as likely to execute decisions as intended.
Advanced users of BI are now shifting from desktop to mobile, but the question is how to manage this shift and overcome issues to enable mobile decision support for decision making anytime, anywhere. Converging the cloud and BI to enable the central coordination of applications for information delivery to any device asks for a complete tool that meets quality standards. Up till today, a complete tool does not exist and it is very challenging to show the value of BI to convince management and support decisions. This lack of value measurements results in difficulties of ROI measurements of BI solutions and thus the demand for performance management is growing momentum.
After the staggering success and interest for our local Business Intelligence conferences in Stockholm, Oslo and Amsterdam, we are now glad to present our inaugural Pan-European Decision Support Days conference. The Decision Support Days is not just a conference. It is a business focused benchmarking tool for strategy makers and business owners working with Business Intelligence and Business Analytics from across Europe and beyond. The conference will shed light on the current BI or BA strategies, processes, tools and models that organisations in Europe and beyond are using in order to utilize both internal and external data to drive business and enable faster data-driven decision making.
