Bridging the gap between the promise of self-service BI & Analytics and Big Data. Some good early adopter examples- see the link, and many organisations foundering. If a traditional industry like insurance can do it there must be hope for all
I do see a lot of companies building the foundations of big data platforms, hoping that they can come up with the right questions to answer, with the use of insights from data. There are definitely some good examples in the industry where companies really benefit from better insights by providing better user experience or operational efficiency. On the other hand I still see a lot of companies struggle, still busy building new reports and thinking about their data strategy, first building a data warehouse, or already relying on the principles of creating a data lake. One thing I definitely know is that big data is still far away from the regular business user.
