“Cindi has created, with her typical attention to details that matter, a contemporary forward-looking guide that organizations could use to evaluate existing or create a foundation for evolving business intelligence / analytics programs. The book touches on strategy, value, people, process, and technology, all of which must be considered for program success. Among other topics, the data, data warehousing, and ROI comments were spot on. The ‘technobabble’ chapter was brilliant!” ―Bill Frank, Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing Program Manager, Johnson & Johnson

Davenport, President’s Distinguished Professor, Babson College and co-author, Competing on Analytics

This is a great read for those who are just trying to better understand the business intelligence space, as well as for the seasoned BI practitioner.” ―Sully McConnell, Vice President, Business Intelligence and Information Management, Time Warner Cable
