Data Governance Key to Realizing Full Value of Business Intelligence – Study

Business Intelligence

A global study unfolds that Business Intelligence (BI) is yielding important benefits for the vast majority of surveyed companies most feel there is more to come. The study named Breakthrough Business Intelligence: How Stronger Governance Becomes a Force for Enablement jointly commissioned by Qlik and Forbes Insights writes that 45% of respondents rate their BI program as yielding “very significant” benefits, while a further 36% rated the benefits as “significant.”

Whereas, the report further asserts that 48% feel issues such as less-than-optimal adoption rates, lingering silos, multiple “versions of the truth” and data security had been achieved to the full potential benefits of their BI programs.

“Governance requires a really fine balance – governing to the point where consistency is assured, but flexibility remains,” said Mike Saliter, VP, Global Industry Solutions, Qlik. “There is no perfect formula, but finding the right governance level within your organization’s culture is a critical component to making the most of BI opportunities.”

Surveying more than 400 senior IT and business professionals, the key finding of the survey includes:

  • Four out of five organizations (81%) report that they are experiencing “very significant” (45%) or “significant” (36%) business benefits from their BI programs. These findings are consistent across different industries and geographies
  • Three out of four respondents (76%) said the benefits of BI are a mix of tangible and intangible, but are always substantial. Specific benefits include improved customer metrics, accelerated time to market, stronger product and service mixes, enhanced brand valuation and recognition, and higher profitability
  • Executives recognize the importance of governance in BI, as over three quarters (78%) say data governance is either vital or important to their BI operations, and two-thirds (65%) say governance is a useful means to empower end-users to uncover new insights
  • Going forward, the structure of BI will feature:
    • Less IT control
    • An increase in standalone, independent BI functions
    • Greater structure, planning, and governance; fewer ad hoc characteristics
    • A greater mix of centralized/decentralized approaches
