IFS Radio Network podcast: How IT professionals and business leaders can use and benefit from the game-changing power of advanced analytics.
It has been reported by the International Data Corporation (IDC) that the market for worldwide business analytics and big data technology services will grow to a whopping $200 billion by 2020. But why? And what does this mean for businesses?
Well, the market is growing because of big data. Most of us are familiar with the term “big data” and it’s not exactly new news for us in business, but it’s the driving force behind this projected market growth.
The data sets that we are receiving from our software applications must be collected, analyzed, shared and acted upon, either manually or automatically. To execute that process efficiently, successfully and profitably, we also need our software to provide advanced analytics capabilities—and we need to know how to use them.
“At the end of the day, big data needs to result in information that’s actionable. You can collect whatever data you want, analyze everything, but in the end, you can only profit from it if you know how to use advanced analytics to make informed decisions and take action.” —Bas de Vos, Director of IFS Labs
