This white paper considers the pressures that enterprises face as the volume, variety, and velocity of relevant data mount and the time to insight seems unacceptably long.

In the last few years we have seen a rapid evolution of data. The need to embrace the growing volume, velocity and variety of data from new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) has been accelerated. The ability to explore, store, and manage your data and therefore drive new levels of analytics and decision-making can make the difference between being an industry leader and being left behind by the competition. The solution you choose must be able to: • Harness exponential data growth as well as semistructured and unstructured data • Aggregate disparate data across your organization, whether on-premises or in the cloud • Support the analytics needs of your data scientists, line of business owners and developers • Minimize difficulties in developing and deploying even the most advanced analytics workloads • Provide the flexibility and elasticity of a cloud option but be housed in your data center for optimal security and compliance

Business decision making is undergoing a data-infused renaissance. Organizations are tired of the limitations of spreadsheets and dealing with long IT business intelligence (BI) development cycles just to gain access to the data they need now. Fortunately, with the advent of visual analytics and discovery tools (many offered in the cloud), the journey to data insight is getting simpler and faster. Rather than trying to divine meaning from a group of predefined reports or simple static dashboards, visual analytics helps users gain insights from data more quickly using intuitive data visualization. Increasingly, visual analytics tools provide easy-touse data preparation features for better data access. They support collaboration, mashups, and storytelling. TDWI Research sees growing interest in applying more modern, up-to-date tools for working with data.
