Examples; 10 of the 986 standard requirements:

  1. In many cases the BICC can support its own funding through the cost savings realized by eliminating redundant tools or reducing the overhead of expensive support and maintenance contracts. As the BICC becomes more strategic, it becomes more difficult to quantify its intrinsic value. How can you measure better decision making?

  2. What are the potential areas of conflict that can arise between organisations IT and marketing functions around the deployment and use of business intelligence and data analytics software services and whats the best way to resolve them?

  3. Consideration for forming a BICC is driven by a need and urgency for change, specifically around the ability to meet business demand for better decisions using BI technology. Who is feeling the pain?

  4. Do you have mature business intelligence environments that can integrate fraud analytics within your current environment to take advantage of processes and architecture that are already in place?

  5. When you see the results or the data you should use your common sense, so when you make a decision you should sort of respect your data and the story, you should investigate: does it make sense?

  6. How many technical interviews/working sessions will be required during the information gathering activities to define the current state environment and desired state architecture requirements?

  7. Do you measure the responsiveness and quality provided to your stakeholders. Have commitments been met, software deployed, response times honored, processes documented, training completed?

  8. Overall viability: what is the likelihood of the vendor continuing to invest in products and services for its customers and how do references rate the vendors relevance in the future?

  9. Sales strategy: does the vendor have an innovative partner strategy, attractive pricing, flexible and clear product packaging, and a strong land-and-expand and enterprise sales model?

  10. What type of user interface has been recognized as an effective DSS GUI because it is familiar, user friendly, and a gateway to almost all sources of necessary information and data?
