The data shift

All the disruptive, connected technological innovations deliver us an immense amount of data. Today, there's more data than ever thanks to the democratization of technology and data. Big data is real. Yet, not all businesses know how to manage this data. Consequently,  data gets lost and will not be used in any manner to derive insights or for decision making. We call this dark data.

Some risks of dark data are:

  • Intellectual property risk: failing to protect IP.

  • Regulatory risk: leaking or losing sensitive data.

  • Opportunity risk: missing out on improvement chances.

Bi 3.0 happens on a platform

BI 3.0 is made possible through a business platform. Think about Uber, Facebook, Airbnb, Pinterest,, ... These platforms all have one important thing in common: they bring producers and consumers together and enable the efficient delivery of a product or service. 

We're talking about networked and connected markets. 

The journey of Business Intelligence

  • BI 1.0 = what happened?

  • BI 2.0 = why did it happen?

  • BI 3.0 = what will happen?

Back in the days, before the technological revolution when big data was still a myth, business intelligence was something exclusively for IT.

BI 1.0 & (partially) 2.0 was built around data warehouses, where only a standard report analysis was available.

Today, data is everywhere. It even became impossible to federate all the data from the countless data sources in one data warehouse. Hence, BI 1.0 & 2.0 became outdated.

BI 3.0 anticipates on this new reality and exterminates dark data. It easily integrates non-structured and external data. Reporting now is real-time prescriptive and even predictive. And most important, it makes business analysis accessible for everyone in your business (even less technical employees).
