Switching Over to “The Leading New Analytic Architecture”
1) “Data Discovery Becomes a Feature.” In this scenario, Business Discovery would become subsumed in broad BI platforms as traditional BI vendors copy or buy lookalike functionality.
2) “Data Discovery: The Leading New Analytic Architecture”. According to the report, “In this scenario, data discovery muscles out and replaces the BI platform for a majority of analytical/diagnostic use cases.”
In this second scenario Gartner highlights a key shift in priorities “Whereas previously, users were looking to have a portfolio of: (1) a BI platform (semantic layers providing the end-to-end spectrum of reporting, ad hoc query and OLAP functionality); (2) data discovery in a tactical fashion, adopted individually or in workgroups; and in some cases (3) statistical/predictive analysis tools; the selection criteria has shifted to look like this: (1) data discovery (now the central norm for analysis on all data sources, and where most BI budget goes); (2) production and external reporting tools for systems of record; and (3) additional statistical/predictive analysis capabilities.”
