Nov 2019 Newsletter

November 18, 2019

Happy November! We’ve been very busy at Dresner Advisory Services, and here is a recap of our activity.

Recent and Upcoming Research

Wisdom of Crowds Market Research Reports

We published the 5th annual IoT Intelligence Market Study at the end of October. The study reviews end user interest in and demand for business intelligence (BI) in an IoT world and examines key related technologies including location intelligence, data preparation, cloud computing, data science and machine learning, and big data analytics. It was covered in several news outlets, including Forbes.

For those with external distribution rights, remember that you can create summaries of the report to distribute, as well as excerpt content to incorporate in your slides, collateral, or blog posts. Let me know if you have any questions.

The analyst team is working on the Embedded BI Market Study, which will be published at the end of the month. We’ll be rounding out the 2019 publication calendar with Big Data Analytics, to be published in December before the holiday break.

Research Insights

We published a new Research Insight examining enterprise performance management market dynamics. The next Research Insight is currently in the editing stage and will focus on the top challenges to BI success.

Research Insights are based on data collected from multiple sources, including our bi-annual survey process, the weekly tweet chat, and industry conferences and events. They are provided as part of your annual subscription for internal use; if you would like to distribute any of these you may apply your subscription units.
