It is no longer good enough to know where you have been. Businesses
need assistance in making better decisions about where they
need to go and how to get there. In this economy, organizations
must move fast, and to do that they must have more than their
current technological resources allow them to do. They need
to have information that helps them better understand customer

TAC Experts have developed a rigorous process to review our
clients’ BI strategies and plans for thoroughness, budgetary
soundness, impact of industry trends and latest technology,
and the soundness of their BI vendors. We work with IT leaders
to help them create and improve their BI strategy and plan,
and to help them convey that strategy and plan to upper management.
Our Experts have extensive experience in implementing BI, data
management and predictive analytic systems. We have assisted
our clients in establishing effective program management offices
to guide and control BI implementation and deployment. Our team
also has experience in performing BI capacity and performance
assessments, and improving overall IT performance.
TAC provides a review of the BI strategy and plan resulting
in an assessment report, delivered on an oral and written basis.
We then team with our clients to assist them in developing the
enterprise BI strategy and plan based on their goals and business
requirements. The BI strategy and plan will include a roadmap
on how to evolve that strategy from BI to a future state such
as PA. We also educate their team in the strategy and planning
process. We believe this is important so that our clients can
take ownership for the recommendations, and are capable of making
continual adjustments to the strategy and plan as changing business
needs demand. We stress that the strategy is not just a report,
but a process that positively impacts how IT delivers value
to the business through the entire enterprise.
As an option to providing assistance to the client in the creation
of an enterprise BI strategy and plan, TAC can develop a clearly
defined BI strategy and plan for the client that includes a
roadmap on how to evolve from BI to a future state, a prioritized
set of actions/initiatives required to implement that strategy
and plan, assist in the implementation of the plan and conduct
ongoing reviews of the plan.
