According to Howard Dresner, founder and Chief Research Officer of Dresner Advisory Services, “we’re in the midst of a profound shift. The impact of location intelligence is clear and organisations should be thinking about how it can be exploited or expanded to improve customer relationships, markets, assets, and more.” With the growth in visualisation and the emergence of Internet of Things (loT), location as a key dimension and maps as a means of displaying and navigating insights have become increasingly important. More than half of respondents in the study consider location intelligence “critical” or “very important.”
Among 30 topics evaluated, location intelligence ranks 20th, below traditional topics but ahead of “hot” topics including big data and loT. “Location intelligence is becoming mainstream and there’s a powerful opportunity to take what’s unqiue and compelling about it and bring it to life in an easy, fast, and flexible visual analytics platform,” said Anthony Deighton, Qlik CTO and SVP of Products. “We see ourselves as the leader in this space and will continue to make bold moves in building a modern, cloud-ready platform that can grow with customers on their analytics journey.”
