White Paper: Describing the BI Journey
For well over a decade, companies have invested in a variety of business and IT initiatives that strive to improve decision-making and intelligence capabilities. As a result, they have a rich set of building blocks to leverage as they work toward a more integrated, agile business intelligence (BI) environment.
Understanding how to leverage BI investments fully while evolving to the next level of maturity can be difficult. A BI Maturity Model can be invaluable in this process by outlining a path forward and helping companies work toward closer alignment of their business and IT organizations.
The Three Dimensions of BI
The BI Maturity Model highlights a critical emerging need for a new breed of talent and leadership, namely program managers, business architects and information architects, that can guide the next generation of integrated, high-value BI solutions.
The BI journey expands across these three dimensions:
The business enablement dimension, which describes the advancing nature of the types of business needs and problems that are solved with BI solutions.
The information technology dimension, which describes the advancing nature of the information solutions a company adopts to serve a variety of business needs.
The strategy and program management dimension, which describes the advancing nature of management skill as a key enabler and catalyst for BI success.
