ThoughtPoint #4: Production Analytic Platform – Into the Future – Dr. Barry Devlin, 9Sight Consulting 2018

Decision-making and action-taking today and into the future demand tight integration of very different types of data and function; from collection and analysis, through predicting future states, to taking immediate, operational action.

As might be expected of any architectural thinking, the Production Analytic Platform must look beyond current issues and solutions to how business and technology environments may evolve. The final ThoughtPoint in this series of four papers by Dr. Barry Devlin – one of the founders of data warehousing - considers how advances in analytics and artificial intelligence influence this approach.
