Aligning business intelligence (BI) infrastructure with strategy processes not only improves your organization's ability to respond to change, but also adds significant value to your BI infrastructure and development investments. Until now, there has been a need for a comprehensive book on business analysis for BI that starts with a macro view and gradually narrows it down to real-world tips, templates, and discussion material BI analysts need to know.

Covering the concepts, tools, and background required for successful BI projects, Business Analysis for Business Intelligence describes how to use business intelligence to improve your analysis activities. It outlines a proven framework for developing data models and solutions that fit your organization’s strategy. Explaining how to avoid common pitfalls, it demonstrates how to use continuous improvement to create a strategic knowledge organization and establish a competitive advantage.
