To Enjoy Data and BI, Learn to Learn and Don’t be afraid of Change

“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” — Alvin Toffler

BI and Data Science are the artistic, creative side of finding truths in unexpected nooks and crannies of organizations and societies. Finding links and interpreting the messages being received from the different interconnections and integrations between systems to ensure a holistic view of the world and of organizations. If you want to enjoy working with data, learn to learn and unlearn everything all the time. Because what you know today, what data tells you this minute, may change in two hours.

AI and LearningAI is changing our answer to “what will you be when you grow up?” The answer is not always nurse, pilot, accountant or all the cute things we said when we were children! In this age, you can say AI manager, Robot Designer or Machine Learner without blinking an eye. It is our future and imagine it! We need to imagine it positively in order to embrace our future so we can manage it.

No fear, even the AI-predictions may change, and the course of our lives will be altered. That is OK. We will learn whatever comes.

Don’t waste energy on trying to control the change, you cannot control the change, because it is out of our small hands. Change may happen because data and statistics can be manipulated or due to the fact that our virtual, online realities are changing every hour. A post on twitter may change the sales predictions your sales team made yesterday. An online AD today may change your expansion vision for 2018.

Data And BI Trends in 2018

Data and Business Intelligence are different ends of the same stick. Or, if you wish, different sides of the same coin. Like Petroleum (Crude oil) and Fuel so to speak. Data and Petroleum being the raw materials. The expense. Business Intelligence and Fuel being the assets. The end products. The income earners.

The predictions for 2018 are as exciting as they are challenging. I would like to name 3 of the most exciting for me:

  1. Analytic is still high up on the list. Analytic go hand in hand with Machine Learning. The biggest cost within Business Intelligence is the preparation and sanitizing of data. Of course, most businesses are working tirelessly to find ways to save a coin by automating data preparation, discovery and sharing and collaboration. That is where machine learning comes in.
  2. Smart Technological Gadgets will become Smarter. New generation digital citizens will expect no less. With AI agents and AI logic, gadgets and apps will be more interactive, conversational, predictive and intuitive to events and needs. All this Smartness and intuitiveness will be dependent on Data – the collection, the handling and the utilization of data.
  3. The Cloud and The Edge will be married. The courting period has gone well. Cloud services have been moving closer to data sources and cloud models have become more service oriented which has shortened the distance between Cloud and Edge considerably. On the other hand, Edge’s centralization and coordinated structure has become data smart and service oriented.
