Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms

Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

in support of wider adoption, companies and independent software vendors are increasingly embedding both traditional reporting, dashboards and interactive analysis, in addition to more advanced and prescriptive analytics built from statistical functions and algorithms available within the BI platform into business processes or applications. The intent is to expand the use of analytics to a broad range of consumers and nontraditional BI users, increasingly on mobile devices. Moreover, companies are increasingly building analytics applications, leveraging new data types and new types of analysis, such as location intelligence and analytics on multistructured data

The Disruptive Potential of 3D Printing - Accenture

The Disruptive Potential of 3D Printing - Accenture | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Digital technology clearly has become a momentous disruptor of traditional business paradigms, as well as an enabler of new business approaches and customer relationships. This is why, according to Cisco Systems Inc., there is an estimated $14.4 trillion in “digital disruption dollars” up for grabs between now and 2022. Accenture believes that digital supply networks are the backbone of this new ecosystem: worldwide conduits that streamline and accelerate the exchange of products, materials, components and (perhaps most important) information. We also believe 3D printing is an ideal illustration of the digital supply network’s vast potential

Very interesting plug-in module that links your vehicle to the "Cloud." The app will track the "minutiae" of everyday driving, perhaps even helping  you to  travel more efficiently.  You might consider adding this plug-in to your car if you really want to know how well your vehicle is performing.  Aloha, Russ.

Wearable Computing: Ready To Take Off via @LeWeb

Wearable Computing: Ready To Take Off via @LeWeb | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Some have said that wearables are a passing fad. And in the very year that Nike backed away from its Fuel Band, it is bold to predict that in 2015 the number of people with a wearable computing device around the globe will more than triple. But it will happen, and the companies that make it happen will benefit for years to come.

This is one of those ideas whose time has come.  Now that manufacturers can embed solar cells in sports jackets and suits and various "smart" watches are entering the marketplace, it's just a matter of time before the mobile office really becomes "mobile"  The self-powered office is becoming reality.  As the article suggests, "the companies that make it happe will benefit for years to come.  Aloha, Russ.

Ken Stephens's curator insight, November 3, 9:35 AM

I do not think this is a passing fad.  I am very interested in where this goes and what innovation this drives from artificial intelligence and Big Data.  I believe it is the perfect marriage as AI is great for large unstructured data with varying sources but will be 5-10 years before it is truly useful and mature.

Fascinating and intriguing article on the role of data management and analytics to increase farm yields and minimize risks.  With the world population increasing and more land being pulled out of agriculture, humanity will need every technological and scientific tool to keep us all fed.  Progress must be made quickly before we run out of food.  Aloha, Russ.

We need error bars around all our #BigData predictions via @IEEE

We need error bars around all our #BigData predictions via @IEEE | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

I think data analysis can deliver inferences at certain levels of quality. But we have to be clear about what levels of quality. We have to have error bars around all our predictions. That is something that’s missing in much of the current machine learning literature.

Farid Mheir's insight:

Jump over to the section on Big Data, and you'll get a great description of where Big Data will likely fail on the near future: making predictions. As a good engineer, Jordan states a fact about Big Data that often goes unnoticed: Big Data today is like gambling because it is not based on a formal scientific approach. Rather, he states quite clearly that Big Data today is like building bridges prior to civil engineering: you can build a bridge but cannot GUARANTEE it will not fail. Same with Big Data: we can analyze a lot of data and make predictions but we cannot guarantee they will become reality.


(or read the entire piece, it will enlighten you on a typical engineering discussion on new technology: dry, cold, fact-based. Much to the opposite of everyday marketing and scientific media interpretation.)
