According to IDC, we spent over $34 billion on business analytics in 2012. To put that in perspective, that's more than the GDP of 100 of the world's countries. And Gartner's 2013 survey of over 2000 CIOs worldwide puts business intelligence at the top of their technology priorities. Given this spend and focus, it's shocking to realize that according to the BI Scorecard only 24% of today's information workers actually have access to BI tools, and that number has stagnated even with the advent of new technologies like data visualization. What gives? The reality is that most information workers don't spend their day working with a BI tool, nor do they want to. They already have their preferred applications. So, what can be done?
In his session at the 13th International Cloud Expo®, Karl Van den Bergh, VP, Product and Alliances at Jaspersoft, discussed how cloud application developers hold the key to making analytics more pervasive within the enterprise. He also analyzed emerging business models and technologies that are enabling developers to easily and affordably inject intelligence inside the applications they build, bringing information TO knowledge workers rather than expecting them to go find it. He then looked at how some of the world's leading companies are already doing this and the benefits they're seeing from this approach.
Prior to Jaspersoft, Karl was the Vice President of Marketing and Alliances at Kickfire (now part of Teradata), a venture-funded data warehouse appliance startup. He also spent seven years at Business Objects (now part of SAP), where he held progressively senior leadership positions in product marketing, product management, corporate development and strategy - ultimately becoming the General Manager of the Information-On-Demand business. Earlier in his career, he was responsible for EMEA marketing at ASG, one of the world's largest privately-held software companies. Karl started his career as a software engineer.
Karl holds a Master's degree in Computer Science, with Distinction, from Imperial College London and a Bachelor's degree in Physics from Trinity College Dublin. He has lived and worked in many countries in Europe and in the US and is fluent in three languages.
