Gartner Says Treat Business Intelligence Programmes as Cultural Transformation, not Just Another IT Project

CIOs must ensure that business intelligence (BI) programs are treated as a cultural transformation of the business, instead of as an IT project, according to Gartner, Inc. Leading organizations are using key parts of BI, such as decision modelling and support to ensure all workers, managers and executives can make the right decisions in a given business situation.

In this way, workers not only see the future, but often create it.”
