This means identifying what you need and exploring the BI platform options available to you in order to find the perfect solution that has all the features you require and a UX that’s simple enough to be used by anyone who needs data access.
Build a Business Intelligence Strategy
For successful business intelligence implementation, businesses need a strategy both during the implementation process to make sure everyone is trained and knowledgeable on the uses of BI, as well as the overall goals and KPIs that will help you measure success and make better use of the data that BI gives you access to.
This is a team-based process that involves many people from across an organization to get the most valuable information on where business intelligence can be effective, how it can be best put to use, and what needs to be accomplished by it.
