Business Intelligence Guiding Principles


An important of any Business Intelligence Program is establishing a set of guiding principles around BI. These serves to distinguish BI programs from other IT initiatives.

The main things to consider when forming BI Guiding Principles include:

  • Make decisions - around what overarching philosophies.
  • Develop BI COE's - centers of excellence for each area of the business that BI touches – together these form a BI Governance chain.
  • BI Competency Center - establishes BI priniciples and separates BI from other IT.
  • Ownership – make sure business knows it owns the data, and is accountable for data decisions.
  • Culture - ensure principles are aligned to company culture as much as IT policy.

 

Benefit of BI Guiding Principles

BI Guiding Principles force us to think more about what is going to work in our BI environment and also what is going to be supported in the enterprise culture.
