George Siemens:

The future of systems such as business, government, and education will be data centric. Historically, humanity has made sense of the world through discourse, dialogue, artifacts, myth, story, and metaphor. While those sensemaking approaches won’t disappear, they will be augmented by data and analytics.

True, and I'll sure do my best to promote that development. Not in the educational sector though, I lost my 30+ year battle to transform the school I have been married to since 1980, won't wait another 30.
