We've had our share of "tech revolutions" over the almost four decades that I've been following the IT sector. The PC, the Web, the smart phone, and so on. But something sets what I'll call the data revolution apart from the others.
As in the other cases, the adoption of -- and advances in -- analytics technology has been rapid. But the difference this time around is that so many of those adopters are finding success and quickly integrating analytics tech into their day-to-day business operations.
The transition from backroom business intelligence and static reports to adoption of data-driven decision making using real-time analytics has been unique. The PC, the Web, the smart phone all lingered for a while as CIOs and CEOs pondered what they could do with them.
New research by UBM Tech -- the teams at Interop, InformationWeek, and All Analytics -- now provides a view into just how important analytics initiatives are to enterprise organizations. It's a theme we will be addressing on AllAnalytics Radio, Monday, May 1, at 2 pm ET/11 am PT, when we host How Does Your Analytics Initiative Measure Up? My guests will be blogger Lisa Morgan, who wrote the research report, and consultant Jen Underwood of Impact Analytix.
