How To Choose Your Data Analytics Platform?
As we start a new decade, the top trends for business analytics platforms are cloud, artificial intelligence, automation, on-device (edge) analytics, and augmentation.
First, data has to be loaded and cleansed. Then, depending on the volume, variety, and velocity of the data, you’re likely to encounter multiple back-end databases and cloud data technologies. Lastly, over the last several years, what used to be a choice between business intelligence and data visualization tools has ballooned into a complex matrix of full-lifecycle analytics and machine learning platforms.
The greater volumes and variety of data can be stored and analyzed locally, with no need for it to be sent backwards and forwards between the user and the cloud, for increased efficiency. In some cases, this is helping to alleviate security and privacy concerns, too.
