Gartner: Business Intelligence initiatives fail to align analytics correctly

    By: Mr. Adrian Bridgwater on Jan 10, 2012

    Technology research and analysis firm Gartner has said that by 2014, fewer than 30 per cent of business intelligence (BI) initiatives will align analytics completely with enterprise business drivers, despite alignment being the foremost BI challenge.

    In addition, Gartner analysts said that by 2013, BI initiatives will be based on an organisational model that strikes a balance between centralised and decentralised delivery.

    “The immediate future of the BI landscape is one of a disconnect between marketing hype about pressing challenges on the one hand and reality on the other,” said Andreas Bitterer, research vice president at Gartner.

    “The need for analytics does not match most organisations’ skill requirements; vendor hype for cloud-based BI is not reflected in revenue and customer adoption, and there is a struggle between centralised and decentralised organisational models of BI delivery,” he added.

    Gartner’s three central predictions for the BI market are:

    • By 2013, every major BI platform vendor will present a cloud offering, but these will account for just 3 per cent of total BI revenue.
    • By 2013, BI initiatives will be based on an organisational model that strikes a balance between centralised and decentralised delivery.
    • By 2014, fewer than 30 per cent of BI initiatives will align analytic metrics completely with enterprise business drivers.
