Business intelligence architecture is a set of frameworks to organize the data, management, and technical components used to build BI systems. Architecture plays an important role in BI programs and projects, ensuring that the development efforts of multiple projects fit neatly together as a cohesive whole. Comprehensive architecture addresses data, technology, integration, business rules, processes, projects, and more. Multifaceted, multidimensional, and complex—BI architecture is clearly a team job that involves data architects, integration architects, technology architects, and more. With the right knowledge and skills, your BI architects become an effective team able to handle the many complexities of BI systems.
