“We see signs of the emerging importance of BI in India as senior executives are increasingly exploring the different styles of analytics to resolve their business imperatives, ,” said Ian Bertram, Managing Vice President at Gartner. “There is an increased emphasis on the metrics management and growing use of performance management. Software and service providers are increasing marketing spend on BI thus leading to higher visibility. In many industries, especially the regulated ones, such as telecom and financial services, clients are setting up dedicated  competency centers focused on the use of information.”

Indian CIOs are gaining a better understanding of the non-IT competences required for successful BI implementation; however, a general lack of  talent across all fields of information management in organizations  will continue to be the critical barrier to their successful adoption of  Business Analytics  initiatives. The increasing interest in big data creates new challenges across these areas..

“Indian enterprises adopting BI have the advantage of benefiting from earlier adopters in developed markets, rather than needing to build their approaches from the ground up. In order to increase adoption, enterprises should evaluate advanced technologies, such as interactive visualization, mobile BI,cloud and in-memory technologies, “said Sood.
