The statistics are sobering: one of the most surprising takeaways from the Gartner business intelligence Magic Quadrant is that by 2016, 90% of self-service business intelligence (BI) initiatives will lack the data governance required to prevent inconsistencies capable of negatively impacting an organization. Unfortunately, many businesses today are implementing BI without a game plan, and they are just hoping and praying that it all goes well.
Don’t cross your fingers and hope that luck strikes. A good business intelligence implementation is the result of careful planning and diligent execution. In fact, research by Aberdeen Group shows the top strategies of organizations that are successful in their data discovery efforts. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we’ve created this infographic with 3 tips based on those success strategies to show how you can cut through the blarney and get your pot of BI gold at the end of the rainbow – no luck required.
