More than two-thirds (68%) of organizations expect to see a positive impact from their analytics-oriented initiatives in less than a year, with 6% of the total actually predicting immediate results. This seems ambitious given the complexity and required collaboration between existing staff, and the ongoing nature of these efforts.
