It goes without saying that there are many reasons why BI implementations fail or succeed. However, my experience over the years has taught me that some are more important than others. My top ten are….
- Choose the right tools
- Obtain buy-in from stakeholders (business support is paramount)
- Agile implementations win
- Bring the right competence on-board (the right skill sets make a world of difference)
- Set goals, make plans and follow through
- Set up routines for data quality (your data is likely worse than you think)
- Set up and maintain meta-data (think re-usability)
- Do not forget about scale and performance
- Ensure organization is mature
- Make it last –> BI is a journey
