Implementing Pragmatic BI Standards

In spite of a tough economic climate, the business intelligence (BI) market continues to experience strong growth—IDC estimates that it will reach $7.5 billion in 2006. BI implementation projects show consistently high return on investment (ROI) and are increasingly recognized as key for business success.

But few organizations have a comprehensive enterprise BI strategy or clearly defined BI standards. And many organizations are currently facing the consequences of a growing patchwork of disparate BI technologies:

  • Rising redundant costs in deployment, maintenance, and training
  • Increased information inconsistencies
  • Frustrated end users who cannot get timely answers to business questions

What's the solution? Standardization.

By reducing the number of standard BI tools in your organization, you can achieve greater cost savings, more control of information, and better alignment with your business users. Best of all, your competitive advantage increases because you are getting the most out of enterprise BI.
