2014 TDWI BI Benchmark Report: Organizational and Performance Metrics for Business Intelligence Teams
TDWI Member Exclusive

September 12, 2014

TDWI’s annual BI Benchmark Report enables business intelligence (BI) teams to compare themselves to their peers on a series of organizational and performance metrics. The 2014 report is based on a Web survey of 357 BI professionals conducted worldwide in spring and early summer 2014. Responses come from IT professionals, business sponsors, users, and systems integrators to focus on the individuals who most directly drive BI initiatives. Responses from vendor representatives, professors, and students were excluded.

This report uses year-over-year comparative data to illustrate trends in the BI industry. Multiple-answer questions and rounding account for totals that do not equal 100 percent. All figures are based on worldwide totals and represent percentages unless otherwise indicated. In the concluding “Characteristics of BI Success” section, we analyze a number of factors that contribute to BI success or failure, including:

  • BI budgets as a percentage of overall IT budget
  • Development methodology
  • To whom BI teams report
  • BI maturity and number of years building an environment
  • BI team size as a percentage of overall IT
  • Number of per-project, full-time equivalent (FTE) employees
  • Scope of BI environments
  • Centralized and decentralized BI resource organization
