BI Project Skills
BI Skill Categories
BI skill categories include:
Data Management – need is directly proportional
to number of subject areas you are integrating on Data Warehouse.
This is quite different from other application development which
concentrate more on the user front end – the dashboards etc
and BI controls.
Application Delivery - there are a number of
ways that this can be done depending upon the organisations current
IT infrastructure and desktop capability.
Program Alignment – Program of Management,
alignment, change management.
Lot of IT managers mistakenly believe that all they need is a couple
of technical guys and they are done. BI projects come to their knees
thorugh this belief. This is NOT a BI project – we just have
an intellectual team of data loading.
Change Mangement - In any organisation, there
are a lot of inhibitors to growth and to propel change. BI Programs
are so linked to businesses that they have the ability to accelerate
change. This may surprise some organisations, and those who are
not ready for the accelerated rate of change may find the program
outcomes overwhelming, and therefore resist adoptiong.
Therefore the businesses have to embrace this rate of change before
they will embrace BI.
Planning for business intelligence must include headcount and additional
skillset for the BI team.
