Why Read This Report

How can you make sure that your business intelligence (BI) initiative is a success? This question isn't unique to BI, but it's still a tall order, as many organizations have a history of failed BI projects. This report provides application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals working on BI initiatives with insight into the ingredients that contribute to BI success as well as the most typical pitfalls — and how to avoid them. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy. We have updated it to include Forrester's latest data and to reflect the insights gained from our ongoing research into this topic.
