Massive innovations in data science yet to come

by Alexander Linden  |  August 27, 2015  |  1 Comment

Of course, clients ask us, Gartner’s Advanced Analytics team, about the key trends in Advanced Analytics and Data Science…  Well, here is a somewhat dated overview of advanced analytics trends we had down so far:trend_slide

What new trends are we missing here?

Personally, I think it is still early in the realm of advanced analytics. Although organizations are already inundated with data and recognize that analytics is the key to unlocking its business value, it’s easy to neglect that advanced analytics is still in its infancy. Almost every advanced analytics solution is a stand-alone point-solution, which addresses only one business problem. There are no set ways for how data should move from its raw state to become an insight that results in a business outcome.

In forthcoming blog posts I want to discuss one massive innovation that is yet to come and will have huge impacts in data science, big data and even beyond.

It will be around apps and the fact that app marketplaces  (also called algorithmic market places) are popping up at an increasing rate. What if everything is becoming an app? Algorithms as apps.. Solutions as apps.. Even connectors and data as apps.. In the next blog I will describe more of this new App Computing trend and some of its profound impacts.

All the best. Stay tuned, I promise to be back shortly.
