Successful Business Intelligence

Webinar Abstract
To be successful with business intelligence, it takes more than a powerful BI tool or technical architecture. It takes quality data, executive level support, a strong business-IT partnership, and a culture that supports fact-based decision making. In this session, Cindi Howson highlights findings from her new book Successful Business Intelligence: Secrets to Making BI a Killer App on the state of the industry and how some companies have achieved exceptional success. The book includes case studies from 7 leading companies and results from an industry survey. Webinar participants can benchmark where their BI deployment stands versus best in class BI companies and take pro-active steps to bring greater success to their BI initiatives.

You will learn:

  • The state of BI adoption and success
  • What are the most important technical and organizational aspects that affect BI success
  • Who is the ideal executive sponsor and how to garner their support
  • The role of the LOFT effect (Luck, Opportunity, Frustration, and Threat) and how to use it to improve BI success
  • How to make BI relevant
