What analysis and design techniques are most appropriate? How do you estimate the size of a BI project? How should such a project be managed? How can systems be delivered rapidly, but still be scaleable for the future? How do you align the project to business strategy? To address this requirement, the author has developed a framework which steers executives, consultants project managers and IT developers through these critical areas of business Objects BI deployments. The Framework Architecture fuses management methodologies such as Balanced Scorecards, Strategy MAPS, Portfolio Management, Six-Sigma, ROI Analysis and Activity based Costing with a Business Objects development Lifecycle methodology called RIM Rapid Implementation Method for the sole purpose of aligning Business Objects BI Projects and applications to organisations Strategy. The framework, optimised for Business Objects deployments is descriptive, not prescriptive. It describes the processes, methods and tasks required for the alignment of Business Objects BI deployments with an organisations Strategy. Companies embarking upon a Business Intelligence project can benefit from the wealth of practical experience built up by the author to assist them in the successful implementation of a new Business Objects business intelligence system.
