Over the past decade business intelligence has been revolutionized. Data exploded, and became big. We all gained access to the cloud. Spreadsheets finally took a backseat to actionable and insightful data visualizations and interactive business dashboards. The rise of self-service analytics democratized the data product chain. Suddenly advanced analytics wasn’t just for the analysts.
2016 was a particularly major year for the business intelligence industry. The trends we presented last year will continue to play out through 2017. But the BI landscape is evolving and there are emerging trends in business intelligence to keep an eye on. In 2017 business intelligence strategy will become increasingly customized to each business.

Businesses are no longer wondering if data visualizations improve analyses but what is the best way to tell each data story. 2017 will be the year of collaboration and embedded BI tools: clean and secure data combined with simple and powerful presentation.
