The 7 ‘Fatal Flaws’ of Business Intelligence

Gartner known for it’s research insights, outlined 7 ‘Fatal Flaws’ of Business Intelligence leading to a failure of a Business Intelligence implementation in enterprise. Also with suggestions to avoid them. This and much more were discussed in the Gartner’s Business Intelligence Summit in London this week.

Though some flaws are discussed as lessons learnt at the Business Intelligence circles, the enterprises still skip them as a joke. High time, the BI installations start making sense to senior management of the enterprise. Have added the 7 seven flaws here as points with my bullets. Do read the article, Gartner: The 7 ‘Fatal Flaws’ of Business Intelligence, How to Avoid Them, the flaws and suggestions to avoid are expanded.

Seven Flaws of Business Intelligence –

Flaw 1 – “If we build it, they will come”
Flaw 2 – “Managers need to negotiate the numbers” (it happens)
Flaw 3 – “Data quality problem…we don’t have one” (*** Alert Alert, Critical Issue)
Flaw 4 – “Our enterprise applications vendor will deliver the best solution” (* Just a dream)
Flaw 5 – “Darwin was right – BI projects need to evolve” (** True Gartner, We love you for this)
Flaw 6 – “We can outsource the whole thing”
Flaw 7 – “Just give me a dashboard!”

    If you rely on a consult to tell how to run your business intel or justify its importance then you should find another business. Ask any baniya how he gets his business intel.Lots of common sense and little consulting. Just like the way Dhirubhai did it.

    I did work for a MNC consult for a brief period. So i would like to think that I know a little, abt the way they work. When I joined my firm I was catergorically told “Keep your graphs pointing upwards…..!!!”. No one wants to invest in a crummy market/product so make it look good. So much for ethical research. Often these kinds of reports are pedaled among various firms who then use the info for making decisions and assumptions.
    The tech bubble is case in point.

    None of big names are above this,including the firm named in the blog, hence the irony. Its looks more like a gimmick to sell half baked market reports.

    Perhaps the 8th Fatal Flaw is basing business decisions on the advice of consults.
