Technology is advancing at such a rapid rate that it can be difficult to remain current. This year is slightly different though as the trends of 2020 are largely carrying through to 2021, but with further innovations.
Leading trends in business intelligence technologies for the year encompass improvements in artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics.
More than this, people will find new ways to use existing business intelligence technologies to drive further innovation in this field. These are the ways in which BI and data analytics are poised to evolve in this decade.

Data And Analytics
Big data access and its analysis will continue to grow. As uncertainty in the business domain increases, the need to retrieve and analyze data to remain relevant will likewise develop. Alarms and projections will similarly become a mainstay in the business world where rapid inputs will require on-the-go strategizing.
Creating dashboards that are responsive to fast changes will serve as a valuable resource together with complementary business intelligence technologies. Real-time data access and analysis will mean the difference between surviving or thriving in the years ahead.
AI surrounds us whether we realize it or not. It has become part of our daily life and is often so subtle that we are unaware of its presence. But AI is set to become far more visible over the next decade as part of a collection of business intelligence technologies that continue to evolve.
AI will take on a more prominent role in engineering in the form of hyper-automation. What this means is that machine learning will grow considerably, replacing the tasks usually undertaken by humans. We hope that this drive to create intelligent machinery will not one day fully replace people or challenge their superiority on the planet.
Data Security And AI
Mostly, AI does and will continue to impact how businesses manage their data and their overall interaction with analytics. Due to the sophistication of AI algorithms, advanced speeds and accuracy of neural networks, scalability, and capabilities of this technology, security features prominently.
Because of these concerns, regulators are imposing stricter standards to maintain user privacy. Budgets relating to security and privacy will increase in tandem with the ongoing progression of this and other dynamic business intelligence technologies.
Data visualization is causally linked with analytics and is anticipated to experience great advances over the next 10 years. Empowering business users is now more vital than ever if an organization wants to outperform its competitors. Being able to create visual representations will enable both cooperative team decisions and senior management strategies in real-time.
Future innovations will rely heavily on a visualization process in combination with advanced guided analytics. New tools will be developed to support this process, driving deep insights that generate sustainable action, which is accessible to everyone.
Businesses increasingly understand the value of embedded analytics as an essential element of business intelligence technologies. Adding this element to their applications helps increase productivity.
As an advanced value add, embedded analytics will become a standard feature in daily business operations. Embedded analytics can be seamlessly introduced into existing systems, saving on costs while also promoting decision-making and growth.
Predictive And Prescriptive Analytics Tools
Predictive and prescriptive analytics is focused on future projections and scenarios. While big data mining focused on the past, but prescriptive advances are narrowing down the margin of error for forecasting.
Analyzing data in the present enables organizations to anticipate strategies to respond to future business concerns. This business intelligence technology is set to expand exponentially over the next 10 years, changing how business is conducted for decades to come.
Advances in the future will comprise data automation, collaborative business intelligence, mobile, and SaaS BI, and more. These leading trends in business intelligence technologies will determine whether your organization is here to stay.
