Benefits of Data Intelligence

While many businesses are still reeling from the impact of the global pandemic, others seem to manage quite impressively. You may wonder, what are successful companies doing differently to thrive in the current economic climate?

Aside from having the essential digital infrastructure in place, the key technology enabler is Data Intelligence. Future-ready companies are increasing their investment in data analytics and business intelligence tools to stay ahead of the pack.

Here are 5 emerging data intelligence technologies that you can leverage today to become the smart enterprise of the future.

1. Predictive Security Analytics

The average cost of a data breach worldwide is 3.86M USD per incident. At this rate, the value of cyber insurance premiums worldwide is estimated to run as high as 20BN USD by 2025 with 51% of organizations paying the ransom after an attack. 

When it comes to data breaches, predictive security analytics can help businesses with a limited security staff stay ahead of attacks. Predictive security analytics tells them where threat actors tried to attack in the past, so it helps to see where they’ll strike next.  

The variety and volume of data involved in data breaches are overwhelming. Predictive security analytics automates much of the workload. However, it’s still essential to have an expert interpret the findings and patterns. 

It starts with a collection and analysis of threats, i.e. malware, data breaches, phishing campaigns, and so on. Relevant information is extracted then used to spot a cybercriminal’s attempt to exploit an operating system or an app’s vulnerability. 

Predictive security analytics then raises a red flag when a cybercriminal threatens the organization by analyzing the signatures and comparing them against files, network traffic, and emails that flow in and out of the network to detect abnormalities. 

Predictive security analytics is not a cure-all. It’s just one among many solutions to preventing data breaches.

2. Enhanced Cloud Visibility

2020 saw a massive move to the cloud with companies having enhanced access to data to maintain collaboration and productivity across a globally distributed workforce. Today, data intelligence can be flexibly deployed on public, private, hybrid, multi, or cloud microservices, to ensure security and compliance at all endpoints. By harnessing the power of data, businesses can garner true visibility and valuable insight to their vast cloud environment and guide their strategy.

3. Unified Data Management

Businesses can now run powerful data intelligence programs on auto-pilot using ML/AI and empower teams to make timely and informed decisions. To make sure they are not missing out on valuable data, analytics platforms have included ingenious additions to help businesses consolidate, explore and enrich their data for analysis. These are becoming native features of an advanced business intelligence workflow, which includes data integration, preparation, management, insighting and visualization.

4. Decision Automation

A widely distributed network of users and applications is creating multiple points of consumption for data intelligence. For instance, the adoption of natural language query (NLQ) capabilities into customer conversations that can deliver in-context analytics, is emerging as a vital functionality. This insight enables AI and ML to execute the appropriate action across multiple points in any business workflow. 

Decision intelligence is also an invaluable outcome of AI and ML – delivering best practice frameworks at scale. 

 5. Data Storytelling

Businesses are looking beyond the constraints of the ROI and utility of dashboards for richer, more dynamic content. Some of these data stories come in the form of presentations, purpose-built portals, media, and much more. These dynamic insight delivery mechanisms are becoming even more immersive and interactive with augmented/virtual reality. By demystifying complex stats and humanizing interactions, businesses are able to communicate their intention more compellingly with powerful data storytelling.
