Return on Investment
Many companies face the dilemma of making the right investment decision regarding new solutions. One of such common dilemmas of our customers is the possibility of implementing the Business Intelligence analytical solutions. A common concern are the initial costs required for such implementations, whereas it is impossible to explicitly specify the benefits they offer. Experience shows that quite often companies appear to forget about their business needs which were the main reason of their interest in analytical solutions.
During many meetings, companies focus on such details as data integration, database hardware types or appearance of the reporting tool forms. Such factors frequently determine the choice of the given solution, which, at later stages of the project, makes the customers aware that their approach had been wrong. As a consequence, after many months of carrying out the project, it is hard to actually assess the measurable financial benefits and the extent of reaching the intended business results.
