Gartner released the 2014 update of the Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms Magic Quadrant. Interestingly, Gartner moved the predictive capabilities to a new Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms and dropped scorecards. The most interesting aspect of this report for me was the Market Overview section at the end. According to Gartner, the most prevalent future BI trends will be:

  1. 7% BI annual growth all the way until 2017
  2. Visual data discovery
  3. Easier data preparation
  4. Collaboration and social analysis
  5. Growth in Cloud BI
  6. Real-time BI
  7. Deemphasizing the BIG DATA hype

Join me at the Atlanta MS BI Group meeting tonight to discuss item 5 and at SQL Saturday in Atlanta on May 3rd to talk about item 6.
