Many organizations are operating in a mixed landscape with on-premise and cloud technologies and data. A recent survey¹ by Forrester Consulting commissioned by SAP found that 88% of respondents reported that they regard hybrid analytics/BI platforms as important to their company, and 60% see some sort of hybrid configuration as the next iteration of their analytics/BI and data processing solutions.
