Real-Life, Strategic BI Within Your Overall IT Strategy


Today’s presentation at the Mastering SAP BusinessObjects conference in Melbourne, Australia is about implementing a BI strategy in your organization. Here’s the abstract:

Most organizations know that they should be taking a strategic approach to Business Intelligence. But what does this actually mean, and how do you go about doing it?

Using real-life examples of successful strategic BI implementations, we’ll cover key strategic themes such as fitting BI into your overall IT strategy, implementing BI competency centers and standards, effectively selling BI initiatives within the business, and using BI to align strategy and execution within the IT function itself.

  • What is a BI strategy, and why is it important?
  • What are the key areas to concentrate on when implementing a BI strategy?
  • How can IT act as its own best reference, and use BI to improve its own performance?
