Beyond Analytics and BI:
The Power of AI Predictions

The business use of analytics and business intelligence (BI) is widespread in large enterprises. Although companies in many industries rely on them for a wide variety of applications, analytics and BI are running out of gas. Their underlying technologies have matured and decision making based on their insights is constrained.

What You’ll Learn


Enterprises have achieved business value from analytics and BI. However, technologies have matured, most of their potential has been exhausted, and enterprises now contend with a profusion of tools and vendors.


An entirely new set of technologies is enabling enterprises to become data-driven and agile, with decision making evolving to be real-time, continuous, and market-validated.


Enterprise adoption of AI, particularly cross-enterprise AI, is nascent, growing rapidly, and projected to displace analytics and BI within 10 years.
