Data Intelligence, Business Analytics
One of the best things about attending the SAS Global Forum is all the brilliant people you get to meet. Guy Garrett’s presentation about planning a BI strategy was quiet popular and I have to say he was very witty. Turns out implementing a BI strategy is similar to dating – who knew? Anyway – here’s a follow up from Guy – I encourage you to sign-up for the Achieve Intelligence monthly newsletter for more goodies.

I recently had the pleasure of presenting a paper on “How to Create a Business Intelligence Strategy” at the SAS Global Forum in Orlando. I started off by asking for a show of hands if the organisation the audience worked at had a current existing BI strategy. Out of approx 150 people only 20% put up their hands. I then followed this up with a further question: “Keep your hands up if your BI strategy is documented and accessible so that all information consumers at the organisation know what the strategy is.” Three hands remained.
