Mastering Business Intelligence Complexity - A Service-Based Approach as a Prerequisite for BI Governance

  title={Mastering Business Intelligence Complexity - A Service-Based Approach as a Prerequisite for BI Governance},
  author={Thomas A. Horakh and Henning Baars and H.-G. Kemper},
Integrated approaches to management support – Business Intelligence (BI) – have become widespread. [] Key Method Based on a framework for service delineation, two case studies are analyzed and discussed. As a result, a service oriented concept for supporting BI governance is derived. It complements the framework with aspects of solution composition and decomposition as well as for lifecycle management and thereby enables a holistic perspective in BI governance approaches.
