Data
I agree with the first point. This will allow the analyst to focus more on data analysis. However it is also important to look at the quality of data. Otherwise it will fall under garbage in garbage out concept.

Re: Data
Good point, @shamika. I think analysts will find that there is more GIGO when they are doing near-real-time analysis. There is a place for real-time to spot instant trends (think healthcare issues like flu and other outbreaks, air transportation, datacenter network resources as a few example areas). Sometimes, though, the immediate trend is not very long-lived and we can look at immediate data out of context and make poor decisions. Good decision-making requires both the short and the longer-term viewpoint of the data.

Re: Data
 I am on your side. However do you think people focus more on data integrity? In my view I think this is a big question.
