Over the past decade, business intelligence has been revolutionized. Data exploded and became big. We all gained access to the cloud. Spreadsheets finally took a backseat to actionable and insightful data visualizations and interactive business dashboards. The rise of self-service analytics democratized the data product chain. Suddenly advanced analytics wasn’t just for the analysts.
2020 was a particularly major year for the business intelligence industry. The trends we presented last year will continue to play out through 2021. But the BI landscape is evolving and the future of business intelligence is played now, with emerging trends to keep an eye on. In 2021, BI tools and strategies will become increasingly customized. Businesses of all sizes are no longer asking if they need increased access to business intelligence analytics, but what is the best BI solution for their specific business.
Companies are no longer wondering if data visualizations improve analyses but what is the best way to tell each data-story, especially with the help of modern BI dashboard software. 2021 will be the year of data security and data discovery: clean and secure data combined with a simple and powerful presentation. It will also be a year of collaborative BI and artificial intelligence. We are excited to see what this new year will bring. Read on to see our top 10 business intelligence trends for 2021!
