The West, with more freedom, will out-pace Asia, in coming years, on Big Data & Analytics

Consider this statement, of the reality in Big Data & Anslytics: “The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Data — How Billions of Trivial Data Points can Lead to Understanding.” And consider this statement about the reality much of Asia: “Asia is Mostly Stuck in Some Level of Orwell’s 1984.” In fact, just to demonstrated that Asia’s Orwell’s 1984, in the latest Reporters Without Borders report, most of Asia, is in the color “Red or Black” meaning, there is little freedom of the press. In fact, also demonstrating, Asia’s Orwell’s 1984, just this year, there was a first meeting, in history, of Asia’s investigative journalist.

How can Big Data & Analytics work, in society with little freedom of the press & being mostly Orwell’s 1984, meaning, little real & valuable information, floating in society?

Perhaps, the West & its more information freedom friendly society, will out-pace Asia, in coming years, on Big Data & Analytics.

Gartner, Inc. today said advanced analytics is a top business priority, fuelled by the need to make advanced analysis accessible to more users and broaden the insight into the business. Advanced analytics is the fastest-growing segment of the business intelligence (BI) and analytics software market and surpassed $1 billion in 2013.

“While advanced analytics have existed for over 20 years, big data has accelerated interest in the market and its position in the business,” said Alexander Linden, research director at Gartner. “Rather than being the domain of a few select groups (for example, marketing, risk), many more business functions now have a legitimate interest in this capability to help foster better decision making and improved business outcomes.”

IT and business leaders must expand their efforts to move their organizations from using only traditional BI that addresses descriptive analysis (what happened) to advanced analytics, which complements by answering the “why,” the “what will happen,” and “how we can address it”
