Wouldn’t it be great if every time we start a new endeavor experts pave the way to our success with a list of “never do this” and “always do this” advice? Especially when an endeavor appears deceptively simply but has hidden pitfalls. That’s the case with efforts to gain deeper penetration – increase user adoption – of business intelligence solutions within an organization. And there’s a lot of that going around these days.
Some companies have found their footing with BI after initial projects to see if it delivers on its promises and now are off and running. Others started out with just executives and management as users and now want to spread BI across the organization to gain even greater beneficial insights. And a third segment are completely new to BI and want to make sure their implementation and user adoption are successful.
The second annual Business Intelligence Competency Center Market Study, a part of the Wisdom of Crowds series of research, examines the goals, resources, success rates, and funding methods of the Business Intelligence Competency Center (BICC), a cross-functional group charged with defining, delivering, documenting, and promoting best-practice business intelligence (BI) solutions throughout the organization.
The report addresses a wide range of BICC topics including competency center success, reporting structure, funding models, current and future budgets, staffing and skills, activities, etc.
Included are over 100 pages of analysis, more than 65 charts and 14 vendor ratings in two new industry models.
This report will be especially useful for existing BI competency centers or any organizations planning to establish one.Purchase your copy today
