IDC is seeking applications for successful enterprise intelligence projects and initiatives in North America for its Best in Future of Intelligence Awards. Specifically, IDC is looking for details on implemented initiatives as opposed to ideas or planned initiatives.
This award recognizes the organization that has and can rethink the way it synthesizes information from raw data into information and knowledge, reflects on and learn from these insights and leverages them at scale across the entire enterprise. To be considered as best in class, your organization has deliberately implemented strategies that increase enterprise intelligence and as a result have improved business outcomes.
The overall winner of the IDC Best in Future of Intelligence Award must demonstrate the following three capabilities. In addition to the overall winner, IDC will identify winners for each of the three categories listed below as well as for data culture:
• Ability to synthesize information. The process of taking discrete, objective raw facts and data about people, places, things, events, and other entities and organizing them for generating insights and intelligence.
• The capacity to learn. Facility to learn as a single entity. The awareness about and understanding of the relationships among various pieces of information and previously developed knowledge, and their application to a particular problem. It combines monitoring, capture, curation, and dissemination of tacit and explicit knowledge from people and machines, both individually and in connected networks within an enterprise and with its external stakeholders.
• Ability to deliver insights at scale. Providing contextual and actionable decision support and decision automation functionality for everyone in the enterprise, from executives and managers, frontline workers and machines through scalable, secure, and manageable cloud, hybrid, edge, and endpoint deployed data, analytics, knowledge management, and AI technology.
• Data Culture These organizations have excelled in building a culture around being data-driven. They have demonstrated their commitment to improving data literacy and data culture in their people, have a stated vision that includes data, have quantified and track measurable goals around their use of data, and encourage data-related collaboration across all levels of their organization.
