Business Intelligence and Reporting

Build a reporting and analytics strategy

The challenge

  • Your business partners need an environment that facilitates flexible data delivery.
  • Your data and BI strategy must continuously adapt to new business realities and data sources to stay relevant.
  • The pressure to go directly to the solution design is high.  

Our advice


  • A BI initiative is not static. It must be treated as a living platform to adhere to changing business goals and objectives. Only then will it support effective decision-making.
  • Hear the voice of the business; that is the "B" in BI.
  • Boys and their toys... The solution to better intelligence often lies not in the tool but the BI practices.
  • Build a roadmap that starts with quick-wins to establish base support for your initiative.

Impact and results 

  • Use the business goals and objectives to drive your BI initiatives.
  • Focus first on what you already have in your company's business intelligence landscape before investing in a new tool that will only complicate things.
  • Understand the core of what your users need by leveraging different approaches to pinpointing BI capabilities.
  • Create a roadmap that details the iterative deliveries of your business intelligence initiative. Show both the short and long term.
