By contrast, the survey of a thousand or so IT professionals by market research GlobalData found continuing “heavy reliance” on business intelligence tools, with 40 percent ranking BI above all other tools for analyzing data. Hence, the researcher concludes, AI is likely to play a larger role on IoT deployment than data analytics.
