    1. The Democratization of Analytics in the Cloud

      Not too long ago, making use of advanced analytics required massive investments in IT infrastructure and application software. Obviously, that tended to limit the number of organizations that could afford to take advantage of advanced analytics software. But with the advent of cloud computing, the situation is starting to change. Not only has advanced application software become more accessible via the cloud, the cost of launching a consulting organization based on a particular analytics capability has dropped considerably. Case in point is Pitagora Informationsmanagement GmbH, which leverages IBM Cognos software in the cloud to provide analytics and business intelligence services.

Nor is Pitagora the only company making use of IBM software in the cloud to provide analytics capabilities. CloudTrigger relies on a combination of IBM Cognos software, Salesforce’s CRM platform, Geographic Information System (GIS) software from ESRI, and Google Maps for its services, which include the creation of geo-analytics applications.
