It wasn’t long ago that IT and business intelligence managers were meeting their analytics needs with large enterprise data warehouse (EDW) projects, data quality initiatives, and periodic reports delivering a “single source of truth.” Data discovery tools were the new kid-on-the-block, making an entry via grassroots adoption in projects and departments by delivering interactive information more quickly.
Nowadays data discovery is mainstream and the new challenge is similar to the old challenge – deliver interactive information sooner but on a much more diverse set of data sources and data types such as Hadoop, search- and cloud-based databases, and streaming data, which includes the rapidly expanding internet of things (IoT).
In addition, with an explosion of new data processing technology, IT and BI managers must decouple business users’ interactive data visualization experience from the complexity of the underlying technology. Then IT and business intelligence teams can maintain the cost efficiencies of the new technologies while shielding users from disruption.
