Description

Business Intelligence (BI) has become a strategic initiative of many organizations and successful BI implementations have generated significant increases in revenue and cost savings, however, failure rates are also very high and some organisations are cautious to invest in BI initiatives. One of the reasons for this high failure rate is that traditional BI methods are not suited to all organizations; they are seen by some as being too rigid and resource intensive. Additionally, the focus is often on localized rather than enterprise-wide analytics. \ \ This paper addresses these issues by proposing a BI methodology that integrates a number of existing techniques to support an agile, enterprise-wide perspective. This methodology provides a systematic and structured approach that is enterprise in reach yet agile in execution and generates a strategic BI Roadmap. It was evaluated using a case study and the agile and strategic focus was found to be extremely beneficial. \
