Cutting-Edge Research from TDWI

TDWI and its partners produce original research throughout the year on topics that span the spectrum of business intelligence, data warehousing, and business performance management.

TDWI Salary, Roles, and Responsibilities Report

The purpose of this report is to gain a better sense of the people who are building business intelligence and data warehousing solutions. This report provides an overview of compensation, roles, responsibilities, skills, experience, training, and job satisfaction of business intelligence and data warehousing professionals in the U.S. It also provides in-depth profiles of the 10 most common data warehousing roles.

TDWI Best Practices Reports

TDWI’s Best Practices Reports are designed to educate technical and business professionals about new business intelligence technologies, concepts, or approaches that address a significant problem or issue. Research for the Best Practices Reports is conducted via interviews with industry experts and leading-edge user companies, and is supplemented by a survey of business intelligence professionals.

TDWI BI Benchmark Report

The annual TDWI BI Benchmark Report is designed to help companies compare their BI organization along best practice metrics to others in the industry. For example, it compares total full-time-equivalent staff members for various BI roles (e.g., BI director, ETL developer, quality assurance manager) by size of BI budget. It also tracks team sizes, number of reports, time to deploy a new subject area, and nearly 50 other metrics.  Research for BI Benchmark reports is done via surveys of business intelligence professionals.

TDWI Checklist Report Series

TDWI Checklist Reports provide an overview of success factors for a specific project in business intelligence, data warehousing, or a related data management discipline. Companies may use this overview to get organized before beginning a project or to identify goals and areas of improvement for current projects. 

TDWI Monograph Series

TDWI's Monographs are thought leadership pieces written by industry experts that examine the significance of new and emerging technologies, techniques, or trends. Each monograph examines the drivers, challenges, and success factors for the topic under consideration and usually provide a framework for better understanding the elements that comprise the technology, technique, or trend.
