In this new report, industry analyst Mike Ferguson shares the formula of what it means to be an “always on” smart business, why it’s critical for competitive advantage and what’s needed to become one.

The problem is that insights are largely historical in nature, showing only what has happened in the past. What businesses really need are insights into what is happening “right now”.

Companies want to be able to analyze any type of data, deploy predictive and prescriptive analytics, and get it done in real-time.
