White Paper - The Business Case for Business Intelligence

White Paper - The Business Case for Business Intelligence

Ratings: (0)|Views: 2,516 |Likes:
Published by David M Walker
This white paper looks at the business case that should lie behind the decision to build a data warehouse and provide a business intelligence solution.

There are three primary drivers for making the investment in a business intelligence solution:

1. Measurement and management of the business process
2. Analysis of why things change in the business in order to react better in the future
3. Providing information for stakeholders

As a consequence of the investment there will also be a number of secondary benefits that will help to justify the investment and these are also discussed. Finally there are a number of ‘anti-drivers’ – reasons for not embarking on a business intelligence programme.
