Video: Listen to Data, Sense Micro-Trends & Make Autonomous Decisions with The Sentient Enterprise


Oliver Ratzesberger and Mohan Sawhney believe that the continued explosion of data and the continued evolution of analytics capabilities will usher in the next analytics revolution beyond the Intelligent Enterprise. They paint a provocative picture of the evolution of analytics capabilities towards an ideal state that they call ‘The Sentient Enterprise’.

The Sentient Enterprise can listen to data to sense micro-trends, conduct analysis and make autonomous decisions with little or no human intervention at massive scale in real-time. It can act as one organism without being impeded by information silos. It is always evolving, with emergent intelligence that becomes progressively more sophisticated.

In this video, Oliver presents the evolutionary journey of analytics capabilities that begins with today’s Agile Data Warehouse and culminates in the Sentient Enterprise. Oliver and Mohan have developed a framework to assess your organization’s progress along this journey and “next practices” that business leaders can harness to unlock the full potential of Big Data and analytics.
