Sample Dashboard What is the current statein the field?
Current State• Descriptive to Diagnostics• Emphasis on DD (what is it)• Big Data: The ability to find patterns, correlations andinsights across multistructured data will become amainstream requirement as companies try to betterinnovate and find operational efficiencies acrossbusiness processes that leverage data. These includecapabilities that enable thecollection, storage, management, correlation, organization, exploration and analysis of multistructured data.(Gartner 2013)(JasperSoft with native interfaces to MongoDB, / HBase, Oracle Big Data Appliance, Tibco Spotfire for Big DataAnalytics, SAP Data Integration with Hadoop / Hive etc).
