Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) December 14, 2015
The International Institute for Analytics (IIA), the leading independent research and advisory firm for organizations committed to accelerating their business through the power of analytics, has revealed its predictions and priorities for 2016 and published a corresponding whitepaper and infographic.
The predictions and priorities were announced in a live webinar on December 10, moderated by IIA Lead Faculty, Robert Morison, and featuring IIA Co-Founder and best-selling author Thomas H. Davenport, and IIA’s Research Director, Daniel Magestro, Ph.D. The 2016 Analytics Priorities and Predictions identify the major trends in analytics that will have significant impact on organizations, the analytics industry, and analytics professionals in the coming year as well as the priorities on which analytics leaders should focus their time, attention and resources in 2016.
“In today’s increasingly data driven economy, IIA’s mission is to guide business leaders toward success in all facets of analytics. By emphasizing priorities alongside predictions, we want to give companies a view of both the latest trends and pressing issues they can expect to face in 2016,” said Magestro.
“The demand for analytics has never been greater, creating more opportunities but also more time constraints on analytics professionals. With rapid advances in technology and applied uses for analytics, knowing where to devote time, and what trends to pay attention to, has never been more important,” said Davenport
To produce the list of five predictions and five priorities, IIA gathered feedback from more than 200 analytics executives and its broad network of unbiased analytics experts. One such prediction is that the talent crunch for analytics professionals will begin to wane as many more university programs come online offering curriculum in analytics. One of the priorities includes aligning analytics and business strategy and using analytics in strategy development.
