Some 87% of businesses have low business intelligence and analytics maturity, according to Gartner.
Data and analytics company- Despite the promise data brings to improving business functions, more than 87% of organizations are classified as having low business intelligence (BI) and analytics maturity, according to a Thursday Gartner report. This creates a major obstacle for organizations that want to improve their data assets and take advantage of emerging analytics technologies like machine learning, the report noted.
Gartner surveyed 813 organizations to determine BI and analytics progress. Those with low maturity have BI capabilities that are largely spreadsheet-based analyses and personal data extracts, the report found. Meanwhile, those with slightly higher levels find that individual business units pursue their own data and analytics initiatives as stand-alone projects that lack leadership and central guidance.
