Executive Management, Operations, and Sales are the three primary roles driving Business Intelligence (BI) adoption in 2018. Dashboards, reporting, end-user self-service, advanced visualization, and data warehousing are the top five most important technologies and initiatives strategic to BI in 2018.
Small organizations with up to 100 employees have the highest rate of BI penetration or adoption in 2018. Organizations successful with analytics and BI apps define success in business results, while unsuccessful organizations concentrate on adoption rate first. 50% of vendors offer perpetual on-premises licensing in 2018, a notable decline over 2017. The number of vendors offering subscription licensing continues to grow for both on-premises and public cloud models.
