At this year’s Gartner Data and Analytics Summit, one of the big takeaways is that the world of data and analytics will have an even bigger impact on our society over the next 20 years than the Internet has had in the last 20.

They envision a future of analytics abundance in which data insights are applied to every process and decision across every field.
