  • Business Intelligence is a top priority for organizations around the world. The value of its promise is well known: BI can yield valuable insight that will help achieve competitive advantage, productivity gains, and cost savings. However, for many organizations, achieving this type of success is difficult; user adoption is low, politics and culture run deep, and BI programs can be derailed by factors beyond technology--often related to people and process.

    To address these challenges, a team of BI professionals from leading organizations has come together to offer practical advice and proven practices for preparing a BI strategy that will help you achieve excellence in your initiative.

    You will learn:

    • How to create a business alignment strategy that helps prioritize business requirements-demonstrates value-and generates a series of wins for your organization
    • How to create an organizational and cultural strategy that will navigate politics-organize-and communicate for success
    • How to deliver a technology strategy that will improve total cost of ownership-provide greater IT efficiencies-and address factors that hinder user adoption
  • John Boyer is manager of the BI Advisory Team at The Nielsen Company. There, he oversees adoption, enablement, and internal consulting for all things BI.
