Common Mistakes While Implementing Business Intelligence Solutions


Today in this article we would like to highlight some of the common mistakes most of the companies do while implementing Business Intelligence Solutions.

1. Requirement Gathering Mistakes:

– Jumping to design before getting the requirements. Requirement gathering is about building the right system and design is about building the system right
-Gathering requirements for a BI implementation is challenging as it involves a broad scope. It offers potential for use of data and analytics, business culture, agility and adaptability, continuous improvement and much more.

2. Project Planning Mistakes:

– Generally organizations try to do everything at once by bundling their BI implementations with other IT projects
– Failing to get everyone on the team behind the project

3. Rushing into Implementation:

– A rushed and quick implementation often leads to an unsuccessful implementation
– Frustrates client and the management alike

4. Solution that is not scalable and adaptable:

– Choosing a solution that’s not agile
– Not choosing a solution that can grow, or adapt, to business needs

5. Too much or too few BI software tools:

-Too many tools lead to a lot of confusion and soaring training costs. Too few tools frustrate the users
-Not thinking strategically about the toolset, recommended by ERP vendors
