RSS Description:
“Despite years of investing in BI, many IT organisations have difficulty connecting BI with the business, and to get business users fully involved and out of the ‘Excel culture’,” said Bill Hostmann, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner. “Just one common mistake can destroy a BI programme, and there is far more risk in nontechnology issues — sponsorship, politics, data quality and so on — than in deploying the infrastructure, tools and applications that support BI. Forewarned is forearmed, so organisations must understand the common flaws that undermine BI projects and prepare an approach to avoid or minimise them.”

Quite interesting... basic pitfalls but worth to read, maybe you think everthing is going ok in your BI project and you are missing some of this basic checks.
