Top 5 Analytics Predictions for 2015

by Pat Saporito, Global COE for BI, SAP

2014 was another banner year for data and analytics. Machine to Machine (M2M) morphed to The Internet of Things (IoT). Disruption was more threat than reality, yet some organizations did innovate. There was still a lot of focus on data and technology, less so on people and processes.
