Organizations can unleash the potential of business intelligence (BI) and analytics by empowering users with greater freedom and flexibility in how they work with data. Initially brought into organizations primarily by individual business users, the products are now riding a wave of interest in self-service orientation across enterprises. In every one of its recent surveys about BI and analytics trends, TDWI has found that a strong majority of research participants believe that it is strategically important for their organizations to increase self-service capabilities.
However, it is critical for organizations to improve ROI. This TDWI Checklist covers six strategic issues to address to realize higher ROI with BI and analytics. In some cases, our recommendations focus on traditionally enterprise-level concerns, such as governance. In others, we look at overcoming challenges to enable more users to meet dynamic business demands.
