A power shift in business intelligence (BI) will result in disruption for organisations, a new study has indicated.
Research from Gartner found that, by 2017, the majority of business users and analysts in organisations will be able to access self-service tools in order to prepare data effectively for analysis.
The rise of data discovery, access to multistructured data and smart capabilities will help to democratise access to analytics and emphasise the need for governance. The group expects basic business user data mashup to become mainstream as part of data discovery tools in the coming weeks.
By 2017, the majority of data discovery tools will incorporate smart data discovery capabilities to extend the scope of interactive assessments.
Rita Sallam, research vice president at Gartner, said: “Data preparation capabilities are emerging that will provide business users and analysts the ability to extend the scope of self-service to include information management, and extract, transform and load (ETL) functions.”
Ms Sallam explained that these capabilities will enable them to access, profile, prepare, integrate, curate, model and enrich data for analysis and consumption by BI and analytics platforms.
Through to 2016, less than ten per cent of self-service BI initiatives will be governed appropriately to stop inconsistencies that can negatively impact companies.
A return to more controlled enterprise BI implementations is anticipated, with the roll out of self-service relevant technologies expected within an IT-led project environment.
Gartner believes vendors will carry on selling simple data discovery technologies across businesses, while stressing the advantages of centralised and robust enterprise BI technologies.
“As a result of the limited governance of self-service BI implementations, we see few examples of those that are materially successful — other than in satisfying end-user urges for data access,” Doug Laney, research vice president at Gartner, explained.
