Cognitive computing based analytics will be used to create high growth insights-driven businesses Cognitive computing provides business users with faster decision making insights. Cognitive computing based analytics will drive faster business decisions in marketing, eCommerce, product management, and other areas of the business by helping close the gap from insights to action. Through the use of cognitive interfaces in complex systems - advanced analytics and machine learning technology vendors are already embedding components of cognitive computing capabilities into their solutions Enterprise software is being embedded with cognitive computing techniques. Analytics applications have traditionally relied on hard-coded or rules-based approaches. This is changing as the use of various machine learning techniques, natural language processing, knowledge graph, and other related analytics are being incorporated into enterprise software. 5 Market Trends “The availability of very large data sets is one of the reasons Deep Learning, a sub- set of artificial intelligence (AI), has recently emerged as the hottest tech trend.” Forbes 6 Predictions For The $203 Billion Big Data Analytics Market 15Feb2017 Analytics Trend Report, 2017 (External Version) IBM: Analytics: Dawn of the cognitive era “Over the next few years, enterprises of all sizes, globally, will have access to a new generation of intelligent software tools and application that will automate some decision making and business processes and augment the human work involved in other processes.“ Dan Vesset, group VP, Analytics and Information Management research.

Alternatives to traditional analytics capabilities and technology are increasingly important New workloads driving investigation in alternative data repositories. Inability of traditional relational databases to scale beyond resources of a single server or handle unstructured big data workloads has resulted in a transition from RDBMS to unstructured data stores such as Hadoop and NoSQL. Wider Adoption of Hadoop. More enterprises will take to Hadoop for storing large chunks of data and running analytics to derive valuable information. The ability to provide low cost secure storage along with use of in-memory processing frameworks such as Spark would result in being a key alternative to expensive disk based investments. Benefits of Spark increasingly compelling In-memory computations coupled with ability to process large scale data 100 times faster than MapReduce are key advantages Spark offers. In addition, parallel processing, quick application development in Java, Scala, Python and support for SQL queries, machine and unstructured data are other advantages. It is anticipated that in coming years, Spark might overtake MapReduce as the default data processing engine for Hadoop Drivers of Data Lake adoption are evolving. For organizations that have experience with big data and the Hadoop platform, data lakes are the next step as they’ll become the ingest point for raw data. This would be significant as it does away with transferring data into structured form (excel sheets), helps keep it accessible all the time and provides for inexpensive storage. The long term focus will then be on securing access while automating cataloguing and ingest from various sources. 6 Market Trends “The data platforms and analytics sector has changed considerably in recent years, starting at the bottom up with the emergence of new data platforms. As those continue to emerge, we are witnessing greater impact at the data management and analytics layers as enterprises evolve their strategies to take greater advantage of the increased data processing and analytics capabilities available to them.” 451 Research: 2017 Trends in Data Platforms and Analytics 15Feb2017 Analytics Trend Report, 2017 (External Version) ComputerWorld: Big data and business intelligence trends 2017

Self-Service analytics remain a top need Emergence of data and source agnostic tools. Convergence of IoT, cloud and big data has resulted in enterprises seeking analytical tools that can capture data from multiple sources (Hadoop clusters to NoSQL databases) and platforms (on premise and the cloud), combine the different data types, visualize and analyze this data thereby deriving valuable insights and justify the investment Continued demand for intuitive visualization and self- service analytics. Data discovery and self-service BI will continue to be important in 2017. Self-service BI has been in demand as more organizations look to work with ‘easy to use’ and intuitive interfaces and IT departments have not delivered satisfactory results. Data discovery and visualization, as well as predictive analytics, are among the typical functions users want to consume in a self-service mode. More focus on data preparation capabilities. Self-serve applications such as Tableau are becoming popular as they significantly reduce time to analyze data. Enabling data access through self-service analytics at reduced time and lesser complexity while dealing with structured and unstructured data was a key requirement in 2016. In 2017 there will be increased focus on data preparation capabilities. Business users want to reduce the time spent in preparing complex data for analysis, something that’s very important when dealing with a variety of data types and formats. 7 Market Trends “One of the biggest impediments to accurate analytics is data preparation. This long and complex process can take so much time that there’s barely any left for analyzing the data after it’s ready. And yet, without data preparation, the results from analysis just aren’t reliable. ” IBM: Overcoming the challenge of self-service data access and preparation in business analytics 15Feb2017 Analytics Trend Report, 2017 (External Version) BI-Survey: Top Business Intelligence Trends 2017:
