The world runs on analytics. Every business decision is increasingly made based on data, and every application, service and solution will soon use data analysis to respond to what’s happening now and anticipate what will happen in the future.
Yet, the pool of people capable of using and deploying Big Data analytics needs to expand beyond the “quants” – quantitative analysts, data scientists, analytic scientists and the like. Big Data Analytics Software (BDAS) needs to be accessible to all. Just as the desktop computer revolution made computers easy to use, and computer skills attainable for every worker in the ‘80s and ‘90s, the BDAS revolution will put analytics in the hands of every professional in the workplace of the future.
Last year IDC reported in its “Trends in Enterprise Hadoop Deployments” that only 32 percent of enterprises had actually deployed Hadoop, with another 36 percent planning to do so in the next 12 months. While these are impressive figures, they’re modest compared to what’s actually needed to take full advantage of Big Data. The primary obstacle is talent. To date the technology hasn’t been good enough. In fact it’s been downright hard to use.
That is why we developed a native application purpose built for a new breed of data professionals who rely on data to do their jobs. FICO® Big Data Analyzer empowers a broad range of users to collaboratively explore data and discover new insights from any type and size of data on Hadoop. Big Data Analyzer equips teams of business users, analysts and data scientists with access to their organization’s new frontier of competitiveness: data and analytics.
The time has come to move analytics from the domain of highly specialized PhDs, to the hands of every professional in an organization.
