Analytics continues to evolve. As organizations collect large amounts of diverse data, they often want to modernize their data and analytics environments to support new use cases, such as building machine learning models, analyzing IoT data, deploying conversational bots, and more. TDWI research indicates that newer data types such as machine data, text data, image data, and other unstructured and semistructured data sources are gaining popularity for use in analytics. For instance, text data is already mainstream.
Recently, organizations have started to unify the platform to support modern analytics. The idea behind the unified platform is to provide an integrated set of tools to manage data as well as analytics development and deployment. The modern unified platform is governed, so the data is trusted. It is scalable to support massive amounts of data and is often hybrid or cloud-based. It supports a range of analytics and tools, including open source and commercial products. It supports multiple personas. Given this, it is no surprise then that 83 percent of respondents to the survey for this report believe that a unified platform is an opportunity.
