When disruptions aren’t disadvantages In our seventh annual analytics study, 1,226 respondents worldwide report dramatically higher use of big data and analytics technologies in the past year.

They are: the rise of digitized ecosystems; radical technological transformation; and greater capability to know rather than speculate about the future. More than before, organizations see the upside of acting quickly to innovate their business models and analytics strategies, and improve the information infrastructure to support a future view.
