Successful BI project – Step 1 – Ownership


I’d like to start this series about successful BI projects with a little post about project ownership.

For a Business Intelligence project to be successful the business has to be involved. It is the business that owns the analysis area and therefore they also have the responsibility against the users. IT’s role is to understand the requirements and use available techniques to fulfill them.

The method for developing BI could be called “Agile” with frequent releases and changes (of requirements) in every version. The interesting part is that agile projects should be owned by the business, not by technical developers.

If the business owns the project, common problems like lack of vision, strategy and commitment will be reduced.

Conclusion: Let the business own the project and let IT do the development.
