A Business Intelligence Platform is expected to evolve through user adoption as BI consumers incorporate Business Intelligence into their daily roles. Ultimately, Business Intelligence has to drive effective business activity, gain business insight or achieve competitive advantage. A true catalyst to user adoption is actionable and quantifiable BI which demonstrates Return on Investment or Cost Savings. Achieving this kind of outcome is something I deeply believe in and have seen countless times in my 25+ year career as a practitioner.
