TDWI Best Practices Report | Pervasive Business Intelligence: Techniques and Technologies to Deploy BI on an Enterprise Scale

July 1, 2008

The key to making BI pervasive is getting users to adopt and use the BI tools that an organization purchases for them. This seemingly straightforward statement is actually very complex given all the variables that go into making a BI tool easy to use. This, according to our survey, is why the penetration of active BI users in organizations is only 24%.

The biggest impediments to BI adoption (i.e., obtaining licenses for all users) are the time and complexity to deploy BI tools followed by the cost of BI licenses, according to our survey. Recognizing these challenges, BI vendors are making strides to reduce the complexity and costs of BI tools.

This report will help you to understand system dynamics driving BI initiatives and the variables that affect leverage points of usability and project management. Find out how BI teams can focus their efforts to ensure widespread deployment of BI solutions.
