Many Companies In Need Of BI Improvements

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

The results of the latest IT Executive Outlook survey, recently issued by technology staffing firm TEKsystems along with the Inavero Institute, suggest that many companies are in need of improvement when it comes to their business intelligence deployments.

According to the poll, 47 percent of respondents are not confident in their business intelligence strategies. Sixty-one percent of respondents said the low confidence stems from a lack of enterprise-wide strategies and 57 percent said they don't have the staff to carry out planned projects.

“IT leaders do not feel that IT, the business and the enterprise as a whole are in sync on the strategy or how to find the right talent to execute it," TEKsystems director Rachel Russell said. "This is a critical gap, as our experience shows enterprise-wide considerations and proactive workforce planning greatly increase the probability of a business initiative’s adoption and success.”

As for those IT leaders who are confident in their use of BI, 51 percent said it is because their strategies are closely aligned to business needs.

More companies may want to deploy self-service business intelligence to get more employees on board with the technology. With a self-service model, they can customize reports for their needs.
