Webinar panel: text analytics and the future of business intelligence

The past decade has seen explosive growth in demand for data scientists, business analysts, in-house researchers and related roles. This growth is inextricably linked to businesses recognising the importance of data-driven decision making and investing in in-house analytics functions. But what will the future of business intelligence look like?

As analytics functions mature, there are a multitude of challenges facing analytics and insight leaders. These include:

  • Transitioning from analytics for reporting to analytics for decision-making at all levels of organisations
  • Bridging the gap between analysis and business strategy to ensure the delivery of business relevant, actionable insights
  • Harnessing growing volumes of relevant open-sourced data and incorporating it into business intelligence processes
  • Moving from ad-hoc to ‘always on’ market, competitor and customer intelligence
  • Filling capabilities gaps in current tech stacks

Join us for our next Relatively Speaking webinar event on October 20, 2021. Relative Insight CEO Ben Hookway will moderate a panel of industry and agency experts for a discussion of the current challenges and opportunities for innovation in business analytics and what the future of business intelligence might look like.
