Gartner: What CIOs Say About BI and Analytics

Gartner Symposium is one of the largest gatherings of CIOs, with events around the world throughout September, October, and November. The U.S. Event in Orlando, Florida was sold out with over 10,000 attendees.

At the U.S. Symposium, I facilitated a round table discussion on how to modernize BI and analytics portfolios, presented on this year’s BI and Analytics Magic Quadrant, and conversed with more than 40 CIOs and their reports in one-on-one sessions. Here’s what was top of mind for CIOs and Symposium attendees regarding BI and analytics:

Skills Gap and How to Organize:  CIOs are concerned about analytical talent both among technical staff and within business units. And they should be! Changes in technology mean IT can no longer be order-takers and coders.  CIOs know that when it comes to BI and analytics, BI teams have to shift to being enablers and facilitators rather than sole do-ers.  They welcome this shift, recognizing there is no way in a digital business that they can keep up with demand. And yet, some of the BI staff are more comfortable with the order-taking, build-to-requirements model. On the business side, while many business users are excited about being more empowered, some companies have an aging workforce that is less analytically minded. There were a handful of companies that seem to be in recession-proof industries, but for the most part, the demand for talent will be a matter of survival of the best. The best employers will attract and retain those analytically savvy workers.
