Gartner Report:
Mastering Data and Analytics: ‘Table Stakes’ for Digital Business



“The transformation to digital business is not incremental.”

The time is now for today’s marketing and analytics leaders to boldly pioneer not just new data-driven strategies, but entirely new data-driven business models. According to Gartner, enterprises not working to develop digital business models and supporting infrastructure today will find themselves functionally behind within three years.

In order to stay competitive and thrive in today’s rapidly evolving digital era, organizations must inject data and analytics into the very core of their business. Beyond meeting the critical technological benefits of eliminating data silos and building a single view of the customer, a foundation rooted in data can drive more intelligent business processes and inspire a bolder way of thinking.

This research details a number of key recommendations, including: 

  • Approach data and analytics as a core strategic capability within a larger digital business strategy, not simply as a set of related initiatives
  • Leverage data and analytics for intelligent business processes, which identify and enable digital business moments
  • Start small and build momentum by alleviating operational pain and deriving business value
