Nashua, New Hampshire, UNITED STATES

NASHUA, N.H., Jan. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dresner Advisory Services today published the 2019 Wisdom of Crowds® Analytical Data Infrastructure Market Study. Analytical Data Infrastructure (ADI) defines a set of technology components for integrating, combining, modeling, managing, storing, and accessing data sets and analytic workflows that serve as sources for multiple analytic/business intelligence use case consumers. 

The 3rd annual edition of the report examines and provides a detailed picture of BI and analytic use case priorities/intentions, perceptions, and realities associated with ADI platform choices in the market. It covers deployment and licensing priorities, data types, data modeling/management of data associated with ADI, and data preparation and loading priorities. The report considers user preferences in ADI development and deployment features, as well as ADI interfaces and the needed analytical features of the platform.

“Choosing an ADI platform is a significant decision for CDO/CAO/CIO level executives and their business intelligence and analytics users, data engineers/managers, as well as application developers,” said Bill Hostmann, research fellow at Dresner Advisory Services. “Our study provides in-depth analysis of the priority of use cases and preferences for ADI features and capabilities. Understanding ADI platform uses and adoption will help guide those who seek to plan, develop, and execute a BI and analytics strategy for any size organization.”

According to this year’s report, most of the market respondents expected their ADI platform to support multiple BI and analytic use cases.  The majority (83 percent) of respondents indicate “business user reporting and dashboards” as their highest use case driving their ADI platform requirements and priorities. The second highest use case is “business user discovery and exploration”, which 67 percent of respondents rank as “critical” or “very important”.  Year over year, ADI priorities for the data science and embedded analytics use cases continue to increase, as they did between 2017 and 2018.

“In our 3rd year of analyzing the Analytical Data Infrastructure market, we are beginning to see some interesting trends emerge,” said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. “As organizations continue to mature and expand the use of business intelligence, data science, and machine learning, we expect it to continue driving increased demand for state-of-the-art analytical data infrastructure.”

Wisdom of Crowds® research is based on data collected on usage and deployment trends, products, and vendors. Analytical Data Infrastructure users in all roles and throughout all industries contributed to provide a complete view of realities, plans, and perceptions of the market.  To purchase a copy of the 2019 Wisdom of Crowds Analytical Data Infrastructure Market Study, visit www.analyticaldatainfrastructure.com
