We’re seeing a convergence of technologies (advanced analytics, cloud computing, data intelligence, M2M communications, sensor technologies, etc.) which has helped the XXX industry move from looking at historical time (what happened before) to real time (what’s happening now).
But, if you think about it, by the time you and your team take action based on even real time – it’s already history.
The critical piece that’s missing – is the ability to understand future time (what’s going to happen next).
What seems to be broken – in the world of dynamic data centers, without the ability to predict what’s going to happen, before it happens, either you’re waiting for it to happen or you don’t have enough time to take the appropriate actions.
