IDC’s Future of Intelligence research practice helps organizations build strategies to become learning enterprises built on evidence-based cultures. In the Future of Intelligence, organizations will rethink how they define and invest in enterprise intelligence, focusing on approaches that scale.
Inside the Future of Intelligence
IDC’s Future of Intelligence practice defines Enterprise Intelligence as an organization’s capacity to learn combined with its ability to synthesize the information it needs in order to learn and to apply the resulting insights at scale by establishing a strong data culture.
Taking discrete, objective raw facts about people, places, things, and other entities, adding context, and organizing them for a useful purpose.
Capacity to Learn
Understanding the relationships among various pieces of information and previously developed knowledge, and their application to a particular problem. Organizations will need to convert tacit knowledge to explicit knowledge and apply it across the enterprise.
Deliver Insights at Scale
Providing actionable decision support and decision automation functionality for everyone in the enterprise, from executives and managers to analysts and frontline workers and machines.
Data culture encompasses people, values, goals, and attitudes and enables cooperation and sharing of data and insights. Organizations must evaluate the state of data culture and invest in improvement across the attributes.
