Market conditions change at the drop of the hat, and enterprises have to make the best possible decisions at the right time, based on relevant information from business intelligence solutions. However, according to a Gartner report from a few years ago, between 70 and 80 percent of corporate BI projects fail.
Patrick Meehan, research director in Gartner’s CIO Research group believes that most of these projects fail due to poor communication between the management and the IT department. The repercussions of a failed business intelligence implementation are often painful, and may include lower staff productivity, morale and in some cases, lost revenue. Ineffective change management lies in the process of preparing the workers affected by change, rather than in planning the implementation.
