Gartner's recent predictions about business intelligence and analytics

A recent set of predictions by Gartner, state that Business Intelligence and Analytics will remain top focus for CIOs through 2017. 

It mentions two interesting observations:   One is that the confusion in the market about the term "big data" and its tangible results constrain the spending and limit the growth of BI and analytics software.   The second observation is that By 2017, more than 50 percent of analytics implementations will make use of event data streams generated from instrumented instrumented machines, applications and/or individuals.  

This is consistent with the Gartner's term -  "two tier analytics",  where event processing is the second tier, after historical data analytics.  While the need to consolidate analytics and event processing is becoming more pervasive, the utilization barrier and the need to battle complexity is still a common denominator.
