New Colin White Research Paper: An Enterprise Framework for Business Intelligence

Originally published May 18, 2009


Boulder, CO May 18 BeyeNETWORK™ announces the release of its latest research study and white paper: An Enterprise Framework for BI. Written by industry expert Colin White, this paper includes the results of a BeyeNETWORK survey about the different approaches and technologies organizations are using to plan and build their BI systems and presents a flexible BI framework that incorporates different kinds of BI processing, knowledge workers and technologies.



The paper describes in detail the three modes of BI processing that exist in enterprises today: strategic, tactical and operational; discusses the roles of information consumers and producers; and lays out the various organizational needs to create a decision workflow.


Other key highlights include:


  • Today’s BI processing needs


  • Differing ways information workers and information consumers use data


  • Business intelligence technology requirements


  • Enterprise BI framework creation


  • Evolutionary approach to deploying a BI system


This research was sponsored by Oracle Corporation.


Colin White is at his best in this paper, “An Enterprise Framework for Business Intelligence,” says Ron Powell, Cofounder and Editorial Director of the BeyeNETWORK. “Colin combines his years of experience with BeyeNETWORK survey results to create a framework for evolutionary deployment of BI systems that any organization can use as a starting point or a reference for future endeavors.”
