Leaders of Multinational organizations see an increasing opportunity to make the most of the ever-increasing volume of data available in the enterprise.
Effective mining, modeling, and analyses using even a fraction of the data available have proven to be a competitive differentiator due to improved decision-making across ranks. ABI(Analytics and Business Intelligence) tools continue to integrate deeper into personal productivity tools to track additional user behaviors. Interaction methods like NLG(Natural Language Generation), NLQ(Natural Language Querying), and conversational analytics interfaces democratize access to data and insights for decision-making.
