AI and Big Data to Drive Disruptive Innovation
Maninder believes that this is a very exciting time as data is being extracted and utilized at an increasing rate. 90% of data in existence was obtained in the last two years and the current output of data is roughly 2.5 quintillion bytes a day. It is evident that these technologies are being adopted with many enterprise executives agreeing that companies which do not embrace disruptive technologies will lose their competitive position and could face extinction. “Disruptive technologies such as big data, AI, cloud computing etc. are becoming a vital component for organizations in order to utilize growing data volumes and stay ahead of the game.

It has been incredibly satisfying for Manzeera to see organizational wide change in BI and the subsequent successes brought to the fore by this.
Impediments to Growth
The company feels the most predominant challenges it faced are typical to any organization, that is, promoting large-scale growth and change within enterprise companies. Resistance to change is a major challenge faced in large and medium-scale businesses. Secondly, a lack of awareness of benchmarking models to assess the health of the internal BI function can present challenges –often organizations can see that their BI is not working in the way they desire but struggle to understand exactly why this might be. Maninder is proud of the fact that Manzeera has the processes and methodologies to address such challenges and always endeavor to work with key stakeholders closely throughout the process to maximize success.
Manzeera sees a very good future for the company and continues to invest in line with trends. As an agile and dynamic company, Manzeera strives to keep their investments aligned with the industry changes and client requirements, growing and shifting in line with the market.
