Self-service analytics, business intelligence on Big Data, and the changing role of the IT buyer were the belles of the annual Gartner Business Intelligence and Analytics Summit.
Luca Naso's insight:
Today's buyers are increasingly coming from the business side of the house and not from corporate IT and self-service analytics is growing while traditional dashboard BI is in remission. Self-service analytic tools allow power users to quickly explore, blend and visualize data to produce new business insights and to validate business data requirements to support application development and data management. Is the pendulum swinging in the direction of analytics empowerment and reduced time-to-answer and away from cost control and data quality management? Gartner thought leader, Frank Buytendijk, suggested that we look to the business model that cracked the code on optimizing the centralization versus decentralization trade-off; namely, franchising. This implies standardization of tools and enterprise licensing to drive down costs, tool-specific skilling to create larger pools of skilled workers to be shared across projects and centralized provisioning of compute infrastructure to save time and money.

Luca Naso's insight:
If there was any doubt that the Apache Hadoop platform has captured the hearts and minds of big data believers everywhere, the recent Hadoop Summit in San Jose on June 26 and 27, 2013, may have settled the question once and for all.
