Business and IT decision makers need to maintain a clear distinction between true BI and gratuitous data. This research note provides that delineation by addressing the following key areas:

  • A working definition of BI – what it is and what it is not.
  • A summary of common BI tool types, with examples.
  • Key considerations prior to adoption.
  • Recommendations for high-level BI planning.

IT and business leaders can leverage this information to develop a solid grasp of BI and ensure the initiative does not stray too far from the core principles.
