not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most
intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptive to
Agile Business Intelligence (BI) is about an organization’s ability to
adapt its BI program to meet the changing needs of the business and
its operating environment. Agile BI incorporates both a technical and
process-oriented approach to managing the delivery of BI projects.

To achieve Agile BI, organizations must provide and establish the
necessary tools and conditions in a manner that enables them to
deliver a BI project capable of quickly and effectively responding to
the changing and imprecisely articulated needs of the BI user. Agile
BI does not merely refer to building and developing things rapidly,
but building and developing the right things rapidly.

This requires three critical components:

• Technology: The actual BI application and its capabilities and
capacity to underpin agile development

• Culture: Creating a supportive business environment for the
introduction and ongoing support of a BI solution

• Process: The way in which a BI solution is developed to meet the
specific needs of an organization

Demand for Agile BI is growing quickly. Businesses across a broad
range of industries and sectors are demanding more flexibility, better
Return on Investment (ROI) and greater responsiveness from their BI
programs under shifting market conditions, intensified competition and

Agile BI refers to the technology, content development and
implementation, and also the organizational benefits sought – the
ability to respond swiftly to changing market conditions.

Implementing a successful Agile BI solution is as much an approach,
and mentality to towards business reporting and analytics, as it is a
methodology driven by the new technology itself.
