These predictions were published by the International Institute for Analytics (IIA). They produced a nice infographics, featured below, and re-tweeted many times by various bloggers, using the hash tag #2015Analytics. Other interesting predictions include those by Tableau, those by Pivotal, as well as my own predictions.

  1. Organizations will clarify CAO and CDO roles and how they fit into their overall staffing structure.
  2. Storytelling will be the hot new job in analytics.
  3. Ensemble methods for analytical models will grow in popularity.
  4. The application of analytics for holistic and integrated security breach prevention will be a top priority.
