Make Business Intelligence Work for You


Do any of these problems seem familiar?

We have a business intelligence solution installed, but there is still important information that is hard to get at.

Sometimes I need some information - maybe for a meeting or a proposal - but by the time I get the information it is too late to be useful

The setup we have is all right for routine information, but it's a lot of work to add or change anything. 

Our BI project has finally been delivered, but it doesn't do what we asked for.

We are really pleased with our BI project - it only took three months.

Our BI solution is OK, but it needs five full time specialists to look after it.

The solution we have delivers exactly what it was supposed to - but now our needs have changed.

I spend half my time hunting for the information I need to do my job.

We spend hours each month on routine reporting.

We would like to use business intelligence, but it would take too long and cost too much.

We have bought Business Intelligence software, but have not been able to make it do anything useful.

We have bought Business Intelligence software, but IT won't let us use it.

I don't see how Business Intelligence software will help my business.

We have spent lots of time and money on a Business Intelligence solution, but nobody likes it nor wants to use it.

Our Business Intelligence project has been going on for months and it hasn't delivered anything useful.

My ERP supplier is offering a solution with SQL Server 2005 and a well-known Business Intelligence product. If I get SQL Server 2005, doesn't it have a lot of the functionality built in?

We have bought this Business Intelligence software, but it looks horribly complicated to set up.

We were sold an 'out-of-the-box' solution, but I still have to have implementation consultants for months doing 'customizations'.

We were sold an 'out-of-the-box' solution, but only some of the promised preconfigured business models were actually delivered.

Isn't there an easier way?
