As businesses evaluate how to improve their current analytics and data processing capabilities, many see the adoption of more cloud capabilities as the logical next step. Most businesses with mature analytics/BI have taken a hybrid approach for both data analytics and processing, meaning that analytics/BI is occurring both on-premise and in the cloud today.
Forrester’s study found that businesses are embracing hybrid cloud to support analytics/BI because it:
- Enables them to put data insights to greater use for driving business improvements.
- Expands the value of analytics/BI more broadly across the enterprise.
- Allows the ability to leverage modern cloud analytics architectures.
- Provides greater resource and pricing elasticity to meet ever-changing customer and other business requirements.
Adoption of hybrid strategies can be a challenge for many businesses. However, in most cases, cloud solutions uniquely solve the challenges that businesses are most concerned about for the future of their analytics/BI.
