BI Software Implementation Success: The Human Factor


We are easily convinced that having the right business intelligence (BI) application will help us achieve total control over our business and increase the return on investment (ROI) of our data. While BI solutions undeniably have this potential, the success of a BI software implementation depends on several factors. TEC Research Analyst Jorge García looks at the role of the human factor in your implementation project.

implementation bi  so a BI software implementation project should necessarily involve the same people. A BI solution may start as the initiative of a single business department, but once the benefits of BI tools and applications are shown, it often will spread across a larger number of departments.

Five Key Elements to a Successful Business Intelligence Solution Implementation


It’s an unfortunate fact that a large percentage of projects fail when companies aren’t fully prepared for the adoption of Dundas’ Business Intelligence (BI) solutions. The good news is that Dundas BI can yield your company better success rates when your organization is fully committed to and prepared for the change. With the proper groundwork and development of a detail-oriented execution plan, the adoption of Dundas BI solutions can be a success. And with successful implementation, Dundas BI can help you realize your business goals.

In this white paper, Dundas BI offers a roadmap for successful adoption of its solution, addressing the main factors an organization must pay attention to in order to achieve set goals. To ensure that your BI project prospers, read and follow a detailed five-point plan that will allow your organization to lay a solid foundation to work from, and improve the odds of successful adoption rates. Details and recommendations on effective implementation are made within the five areas that must be addressed: clear communication, identifying activities and actions that drive results, quick access to real-time data and information, and displaying key performance indicators (KPIs) to inform and motivate your team. Learn why documentation of information is critical to all team members, why only looking at the end result—the success or failure of a project—rather than those of individual tasks can cost you, and how real-time data is important for trend watching. Read about the value of defining and clarifying KPI metrics so that the best possible success can be realized.
