The Top 2018 Analytics, AI, BI, IoT & Data Predictions on the Web!

Everything you need to know about Analytics in 15 minutes

What I found was 20+ google pages of articles from vendors, bloggers, and very questionable sources. It seems like predictions have become a trend!

Companies will either embrace it or get left behind. Two. The ability to tell visual stories is now required to ensure the success of future AI/BI projects.
