Research from TDWI and ThoughtSpot, the leader in search & AI-driven analytics, reveals the emergence of a new generation of business analysts as organizations modernize their analytics capabilities and aim to unlock the value of ever increasing amounts of data.
The report, “The Modern Analyst: Meeting Tomorrow’s Challenge” surveys 430 data and analytics professionals including six industry sectors in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. The study found that analysts at most organizations are not reporting success from their analytics projects.
