Oliver Ratzesberger gave a good lecture, entitled The Sentient Enterprise, published by Teradata in its YouTube channel. It's worth watching!
Ratzesberger presents the evolutionary journey of analytics capabilities that begins with today’s Agile Data Warehouse and culminates in the Sentient Enterprise. The Sentient Enterprise is an enterprise that can listen to data, conduct analysis and make autonomous decisions at massive scale in real-time. The Sentient Enterprise can listen to data to sense micro-trends. It can act as one organism without being impeded by information silos. It can make autonomous decisions with little or no human intervention. It is always evolving, with emergent intelligence that becomes progressively more sophisticated. Ratzesberger also presents a framework to assess your organization’s progress along this journey and “next practices” that business leaders can harness to unlock the full potential of Big Data and analytics.
