Automated ‘Most Needed’ Insights
By 2021, 75% of prebuilt reports will be replaced with or augmented by automated insights delivered on a "most needed" basis, according to Gartner analysts Erick Brethenoux and Rita Sallam.

Their findings:

  • Report stacks and static information delivery are of limited use for decision making in a digital business — competition for management attention and business velocity have rendered traditional reports obsolete.
  • Predetermined report formats are increasingly being replaced by a set of more intuitive interaction mechanisms such as conversational analytics.
  • Citizen data scientists (CDSs) and business users are being equipped with increasingly "smart" discovery techniques and selective warning capabilities, fueling the augmented analytics trend.
