Setting the correct business intelligence strategy can certainly ensure the success of BI technology implementation.  Without a correct strategy for BI implementation, the innovative technology that can automate the communication and intelligence aspect of the business operation would be meaningless.  The business intelligence strategy sets the overall parameters of how the technology would be used and unifies the entire enterprise in the purpose of having a business intelligence application.

The most important part of any business intelligence implementation is the corresponding sponsorship or lead role of a top corporate executive.  Without executive sponsorship, the business intelligence project would not succeed.  Direct board room or CEO participation ensures that the principal goals of the company can be integrated into the business intelligence implementation.  In this way, the technology can be used as a tool for strategic planning of the company to realize major company objectives.

Another key aspect that must be considered in any business intelligence project is the unification of terminologies associated with BI tools.  Part of this unification is the standardization of metrics that will be used to generate certain reports.  This is important in order to avoid confusion and possible contentious situations that may arise during the implementation of business intelligence project.

The third key strategic issue related to BI implementation is the role that should be played by IT component of the company.  In any business intelligence implementation, it should be remembered that IT should play a key role only in the technical deployment and maintenance of the system.  It is not a good idea to let the IT division handle the strategic perspective of BI project.
