"The Right Information, to the Right People, at the Right Time, to make the Right Decisions", is not a new mantra. Yet many BI initiatives fall into the trap of attempting to deliver too much, and follow a path closer to "All Information, for Everyone, in near Real time", with little understanding of what a good decision is.
By first establishing an understanding of what really drives business performance, we can focus our investments to ensure:
- We deliver the right information, not all information
- To the right people – those who make critical business decisions
- At the right time (and with the right quality), which may or may not be real time
- So that they understand the desired outcomes and quickly make the right decisions
