By 2019, natural-language generation will be a standard feature of 90% of modern BI and analytics platforms.
Visualization has been a major driver of modern business intelligence (BI), but data in this form can be difficult to fully interpret. Natural-language generation (NLG) is able to create a written or spoken content-based narrative of data findings alongside the visualizations to produce a full story about key action items. Currently, BI teams integrate stand-alone NLG engines, but as the technology evolves, that will change. NLG will enable next-generation BI and analytics platforms to automatically find, visualize and narrate important findings. The technology will expand analytics to a broad audience as well as reduce time and cost for regular batch reports.
Data and analytics leaders should begin to integrate NLG with existing BI/data discovery and other tools. Monitor potential capabilities and roadmaps of BI, data discovery and data science, as well as emerging startups.
