  • Business Intelligence Competency Centers

Business intelligence (BI) has become increasingly more strategic in organizations. IT departments are looking for ways to manage and support deployments across divisions, regions, and functions through the standardization of technology.A Business Intelligence Competency Center (BICC) can provide the centralized knowledge and best practices to help make these broader BI initiatives possible.

As BI becomes increasingly more strategic, many organizations are responding by creating working teams of IT and BI users, now commonly known as BI Competency Centers (BICC). A BICC is an organizational structure that groups people with interrelated disciplines, domains of knowledge, experiences and skills, for the purpose of promoting expertise throughout an organization. Also known as a Center of Excellence (COE), Competency Center, or Center of Knowledge, a BICC can help:

  •         Promote and provide delivery enablement through a           consistent set of BI skills, standards, and best practices.

  •         Enable repeatable successful BI deployment through the           development and focus of people, technology and           process—in ways that makes sense to an entire organization           or division, rather than just a ‘single project’.

If BI is to extend beyond tactical deployments to become a broader-based solution, a managed, predictable approach is needed. A BICC defines the knowledge, standards, and resources needed to make this happen. A BICC is essential to the strategic deployment of BI because it:

  •         Maximizes the efficiency, use and quality of your BI across all           lines of business.

  •         Leads to BI deployments that have higher success and deliver           more value, at less cost, in less time;

  •         Drives end user adoption to ensure its success (simply           providing BI to an increasing number of information           consumers doesn’t guarantee more people will use it).

  •         Eliminates the gap between Business and IT;

  •         Enables business agility and improved technology           management which will help to drive business efficiency.
