Business Intelligence Maturity Models: An Overview

  title={Business Intelligence Maturity Models: An Overview},
  author={Gerrit Lahrmann and Frederik Marx and Robert Winter and Felix Wortmann},
In order to identify and explore the strengths and weaknesses of business intelligence (BI) initiatives, managers need to assess the maturity of their BI efforts. For this, a wide range of maturity models has been developed. In this paper, we present an overview of BI maturity models and elaborate their methodical and conceptual characteristics. This overview helps to understand the topic of BI maturity and can be used to guide the selection of an appropriate BI maturity model.
