Transform data into action for competitive advantage "The knowledge assets of an organization are becoming increasingly important for competitive advantage, and therefore, the way in which knowledge is created, renewed, and communicated is critical. This book provides practical insights into how this may be achieved through the establishment of a Business Intelligence Competency Centre and is a valuable read for 2information professionals.2" -Bill Sturman, Information Architecture Project Manager The Open University, United Kingdom "BI is more than technology and projects. BI must live in the organization-as a BICC. This book helps to make BI tangible and understandable, bringing it to life." -Miriam Eisenmann, Project Manager (PMP) CSC Ploenzke AG, Germany "This book is a must-read for planning and implementing your BICC. It is a pragmatic guide that addresses a lot, if not all, of the questions you2ll be asking yourself. Don2t miss out on getting a head start from the people who thought this through from start to finish . . . Pray your competitors don2t get hold of this book!" -Claudia Imhoff, President Intelligent Solutions, Inc., USA "Creating a BICC forces the organization to focus on the importance of centralizing the gathering, interpreting, and analyzing of information to create business insight." -Anne Ulyate, Group Manager Business Intelligence Mutual & Federal, South Africa "BI is a highly visible element in the 2business value2 trend for IT investments. Initiatives, such as competency centers, should empower user organizations to drive even more value out of their BI investments." -Marianne Kolding, Director, European ServicesIDC, United Kingdom
