Actionable Analytics

The rise of mobility and the cloud, coupled with the growing capabilities of analytical engines, will enable enterprise users to make faster, more informed decisions on the go, Gartner predicts.

"With the improvement of performance and costs, IT leaders can afford to perform analytics and simulation for every action taken in the business," Gartner writes.

This trend will be fueled by the fact that more and more mobile client devices will tap into cloud-based analytical engines and big data repositories over the next year.
