BI Maturity Levels
Increasingly, organizations are becoming more mature in their BI and data management. We see many organizations moving from manual data entry to interfaces, and to integration between applications. What is the BI maturity level of your organization? And how do you grow to the next level?
Growing pains on the road to predictive analytics
The new frontier is predictive analytics. With EPM and BI integrating, reaching this ultimate goal becomes a distinct possibility for many organizations. But maturing to the level of predictive analytics does require several different and sometimes complex steps. And the expertise to know which activities should be mastered before moving to the next BI maturity level.
We advise taking a step-by-step approach to grow to the next BI maturity level. Nevertheless, you are likely to encounter some of the following growing pains:
- Business users assume that setting up a report is a matter of drag and drop. However, the back-end of the application is quite complex.
- IT and the various departments involved speak different languages.
- Easy access to correct and sufficient data is hard to set up. Often, setting up uniform data definitions throughout the organization is a challenge at first.
As a business analyst, you want to focus on your analysis, not setting up a data warehouse or uniform data definitions. We help you with the back-end and support of the applications, enabling you to dedicate your time to the core of your job.
