WNS Limited, a leading provider of BPM (Business Process Management) solutions, unveiled a survey report with the title Time to Accelerate your Data & Analytics Journey is Now, which explores the maturity of data and analytics abilities as well as the future outlook across industries. The report, which was based on a WNS-commissioned survey performed by Forrester Consulting, was designed to look at the role of data, analytics, & Artificial Intelligence in assisting businesses in achieving their strategic goals, as well as the difficulties they face in becoming a data-driven company. The study included 450 CXOs and senior decision-makers from important industries such as banking and financial services, insurance, life sciences, consumer packaged goods, manufacturing, retail, and new-age digital/ hi-tech industries from the United States, Europe, and the Asia Pacific.
While 63% of decision-makers perceive data and analytics as a crucial strategic enabler, just 37% prioritize investment in enhanced data and analytics capabilities, according to the report. This emphasizes the immense possibility of acting on corporate goals in the future. Importantly, 68% intend to expand internal capabilities, hire more people, and use cloud and data commercialization solutions. The report emphasizes the importance of cloud-based analytics in helping businesses achieve agility and scalability. Today, 31% of respondents are in the midst of transitioning to a cloud-first strategy, with cloud-based analytics capabilities being a top priority in their plan.
Businesses are prioritizing investment in data fabric/virtualization technologies, Data Lake, and data stream processing to promote increased data and analytics maturity. Higher-maturity organizations are putting more effort into building cloud-based analytics capabilities.
"According to the survey, 82 percent of organizations with an advanced maturity level have experienced positive year-on-year growth over the past three years. Clearly, data and analytics maturity, including robust AI and cloud-based solutions, is a key enabler of business performance and organizational resilience in the new normal. At WNS Triange (formerly WNS' Research and Analytics Unit), we are partnering with global businesses in their data-to-insights journey by leveraging the power of domain, AI / ML and intelligent cloud platforms to co-create future-ready solutions."
