Companies are moving from a spreadsheet-based culture to one that presents data on a business intelligence platform. As a recent slideshow here on IT Business Edge explains, the move can provide a big payoff for the organization as a whole … but only if you take the proper steps before implementation.
For example, as you begin the initial stages of shifting your data to a BI platform, it’s important to establish key performance indicators across all units for accountability. It’s also critical that you invest in a data infrastructure that can handle BI platform changes to avoid redundancy.
But even before you take the first steps, you’re going to need the right people on your BI team, including a BI solutions architect to provide production support; a SQL BI developer to aggregate data and design solutions for multidimensional databases; and a data mining specialist to mine enterprise systems. Use these job descriptions below to make the right hires.
