Business Intelligence Road-mapping

"All you need is the plan, the roadmap and the courage to press on to your destination."  Earl Nightingale

The Strategic BI Roadmap provided by NorthBound Solutions, Inc. (NBS) delivers a structured plan for transformation into information-driven and performance-focused organizations.  We optimize BI technology investments and embed them into business process to help achieve your long-term business goals. NBS team members focus on three fundamental questions to uncover the cultural, technical and business-process information that feeds into the Roadmap.  These questions are:

  1. Where are you on the BI/ Ops maturity continuum?
  2. Where do you want or need to be in order to be more competitive?
  3. What do you need to do in order to get where you need to be?

We develop the Roadmap by presenting these questions from multiple points-of-view, such as strategic, technical, process and organizational.  The Roadmap incorporates components to help prioritize BI initiatives and identify dependencies and risks. Deliverables from the BI Roadmap include:

  • Business Case that illustrates high-level benefits and timeframes to elicit executive buy-in
  • BI Operational Assessment with Improvement Opportunities matrix
  • Tailored Quadrant Map of current and future state operational BI Opportunieis
  • Prioritized Inventory of Strategic BI capabilities in support of operations
  • Strategic Roadmap of all BI initiatives aligned to corporate goals
  • High-level program plan, budget and resource estimate
