To BI or Not to BI? : An Investigation of Factors That Affect Organizations’ Implementation of Business Intelligence (English)
Abstract [sv]

Business Intelligence (BI) handlar huvudsakligen om att samla in, analysera och konvertera data till värdefull information som sedan används av beslutstagare för att vidareutveckla och optimera verksamheten (Negash, 2004). Utvinning av positiva effekter till följd av BI-implementering är dock inte något som organisationer kan eller bör ta för givet. Tidigare forskning påvisar att ett stort antal organisationer upplever svårigheter att utvinna nytta ur BI-initiativ och att satsningar på BI därmed ofta betraktas som ett misslyckande (Chenoweth, Corral & Demirkan, 2006). Baserat på tidigare forskning bedöms frekvensen av misslyckade BI-projekt vidare ligga någonstans kring 50-80% av alla BI-satsningar (Meehaan, 2011; Legodi & Barry, 2010). I dagsläget finns begränsad forskning om faktorer som påverkar BI-implementeringars framgång på grund av att utvecklingen av BI främst drivits av IT- industrin och dess leverantörer (Yeoh & Koronios, 2010). Detta pekar enligt oss på att det finns en diskrepans mellan forskning och praktik. Vår förhoppning är således att vår studie kan fylla denna kunskapslucka genom att presentera nya empiriska insikter kopplat till framgångsfaktorer för implementering av BI hos svenska organisationer, med hjälp av en vetenskaplig förankring.

Abstract [en]

Business Intelligence (BI) mainly concerns collecting, analyzing and converting data into valuable information that is then used by decision makers to further develop and optimize the business (Negash, 2004). However, the extraction of positive effects as a result of BI implementation is not something organizations can or should take for granted. Previous research shows that a large number of organizations find it difficult to derive benefits from BI initiatives and that investments in BI are often regarded as failures (Chenoweth, Corral & Demirkan, 2006). Furthermore, the frequency of failed BI projects is assessed to be somewhere around 50-80% of all BI initiatives (Meehaan, 2011; Legodi & Barry, 2010). There is currently limited research on factors that affect the success of BI implementations due to the fact that the development of BI has been mainly driven by the IT industry and its suppliers (Yeoh & Koronios, 2010). This leads us to believe that there is a discrepancy between research and practice. Our hope is therefore that we through our study will be able to fill this knowledge gap by presenting new empirical insights linked to success factors for BI implementation in Swedish organizations, using a scientific foundation.
