Yet despite the promise of taking advantage of actionable knowledge, many BI programs do not succeed in delivering on the promise. Whether you and others in your organization are exposed to BI through popular technical media outlets, hardware and software vendors, internal developers, your organization’s system integrators, or external consultants, the promise of BI is often presented as a black box full of incredible technology that cranks out profits by the cartload. Unfortunately, the reality is a bit different, and that promised benefit is often left unachieved as escalating costs, limited benefits, and missed expectations become synonymous with your comprehensive BI program.
In this context, the value of information lies in its utilization, and the greater the number of ways that the information can be put to use for multiple purposes, the greater its value. ‘‘Information utility’’ value can be linked to different aspects of the business, both operational and strategic. Examples can range from identifying opportunities for increased productivity, where greater effort is necessary to execute business processes (which can be streamlined), to optimizing budget allocations to increase overall profitability by both increasing revenues while decreasing costs.
Any manager planning for a successful BI implementation must always maintain an awareness of how the results of the BI program are contributing to corporate value. Whether that means improving profitability, reducing risk, increasing productivity, or building trust, no BI program will succeed without continuously reminding senior management of the value in building and maintaining the program. In this chapter we’ll look at some of the critical factors you must know for the planning and execution of a successful BI program.
