  • The Business Initiatives The lack of a proper strategy between business requirements and infrastructure capabilities often leads to value and credibility of information being questioned. Data structure, design, and business process requirements are rarely considered when setting up Business Intelligence initiatives – tools and applications can only be an enabler and never the process.Cross Organizational Collaboration The ability to put in place a cross organizational collaboration structure that can leverage information across the enterprise. BI initiatives for collaboration is not restricted to just departments in the organization but also caters to knowledge regarding customers, competition, market conditions, vendors, partners, products, and employees at all levels.Data Source Integration Often Business Intelligence initiatives are driven by business requirements that pulls data from disparate sources with no opportunity for consolidation. Data merging and standardization is a process in itself that requires strategic and technological evaluation to ensure that the sources are scrutinized for identifying information needs.
  • End User Acceptance End user requirements are continually being ignored – providing a lack of clarity of what information the end users generally utilize and the value it adds. Information has to be presented in a relevant and contextual manner that the end user or knowledge worker can absorb into the decision making process. The scope of BI has evolved from just an analyst seeking information to more end user related relevance.Data Availability Metadata management is a high priority for ensuring that users, knowledge workers, and decision makers can access the right information in the right context. Ability to relay the information is of the utmost importance. Mobile connectivity for services and real-time analysis from varied locations is another challenge that organizations face for providing critical decision making support. Attempting to provide information to various end users requires extensive inputs from a security standpoint (visibility), ability to drill down data, who validates the data and what influences the decision, etc.
