It goes without saying that the world could benefit from having real-time analytics embedded in their organizational workflow and decision making, but how are we currently approaching building or buying this capability? Innovative platforms such as in-memory computing could be an effective enabler of real-time analytics, but have these platforms been successful? If so, what would be the tenants of such a platform for it to create real value within the organization, and how far are we from adopting it? With that said, we wouldn’t want something so powerful to be seen as a privileged resource, so would it make sense to offer this as a service?

Historically, BI reporting told you what had already happened, but hasn't offered much of anything actionable. Shouldn't predictive analytics provide actionable insight to business people other than analysts, so those on the frontline will not only understand what has happened, but can see what actions they need to take to improve results? How practical and expensive is such a proposition? What ROI could we expect out of it?
