In terms of the type of data utilised, 70% of total respondents claimed to utilise internal data, while business systems and structured data usage was reported at 59% and 58%, respectively.

Conclusions from the survey highlighted the trend of data analytics users remaining focused on conventional types of data, despite industry drive over novel data types. This includes data models such unstructured, IoT, and social networks data.

The majority of BI data analytics users (65%) also found internal data to be more significant than external data. This was mainly due to accessibility as such data can be pulled from within the business itself, while external data requires more investment in time and resources to collect.
