Analytics is changing. At TDWI, we see organizations becoming more advanced in their data and analytics efforts. They understand that the future of analytics will involve new data and new analytics techniques.
Although self-service analytics is a top priority among many organizations today, the future lies in being able to seamlessly utilize tools such as machine learning, deep learning, and other forms of AI.
