Does that term make you a wee bit nervous? So simple, and yet rife with such serious implication.
As data volumes skyrocket, many organizations find themselves at a critical juncture. Oftentimes legacy business intelligence strategies don't measure up to the data-intensive demands of today's always-connected, socially oriented landscape. What's needed is the ability to dig into data quickly and efficiently, across myriad stockpiles, in order to make business decisions with the utmost in confidence.
The bigness of the data stores certainly is a complicating factor. Sifting through mountains of data with a goal of picking out critical trends, predicting behavior, or modifying performance takes some serious analytics.
And that's what we're all about here at AllAnalytics.com, an interactive community created for the advancement of the analytics discipline. AllAnalytics.com is the place to turn for great technology insight, best-practices advice, and big-picture thought leadership on the business of data intelligence.
Here a rich and varied group of participants, including corporate executives, IT professionals, and other line-of-business managers, will share their experiences and know-how on business intelligence, advanced analytics, and data management. They'll provide guidance based on concrete experience and deep research through topical blogs as well as message boards, interactive chats, and, in a special series called Point/Counterpoint, text debates.
