BI software – tools, platforms, and applications alike – holds great potential for helping organizations readily access the enterprise information needed to make informed business decisions and, ultimately, achieve their business objectives. But, as with any technology, the implementation, roll out, and usage practices play a critical role in the success of BI.
In tracking mediocre results, and even failure, in the implementation of BI software over the years, many common threads, or “worst practices,” can be found. These worst practices set companies on the inauspicious path of BI failure. They have been repeated by some of the best run and smartest companies in the world.
