    Enterprise Data Analytics Trends: Market Drivers, Organizational Dynamics, and Customer Expectations

    There is much confusion in the market about the current state of data initiatives, especially when it comes to the potential impact of big data on traditional business intelligence and analytics practices. Customers and vendors alike sense a sea-change in the industry as new approaches, technologies, and best practices are rapidly evolving today, but few can accurately assess the motivations, impacts, and implications of the shifts. ESG undertook a broad study to establish a baseline on various data initiatives and their relative maturity.

    In order to assess the overall status of data initiatives in public and private organizations, ESG recently surveyed 375 IT and business professionals representing large midmarket (500 to 999 employees) and enterprise-class (1,000 employees or more) organizations in North America. All respondents were personally responsible for or familiar with their organizations’ current database, business intelligence (BI), and/or analytics solutions.
