Business analytics and intelligence architecture is a set of frameworks to organize the data, management and technical components used to build BI systems and analytical capabilities. Architecture plays an important role in business analytics and intelligence programs and projects, ensuring that the development efforts of multiple projects and teams fit together to form a cohesive and valuable whole. Comprehensive architecture addresses business purposes, organizational structure and roles/responsibilities, integrated information resources, various types of key processes and a wide array of technology components.

  • Business, data, integration and technology architects involved in business analytics and intelligence programs

  • Business Analytics and Intelligence team members that need a better understanding of the big picture of the systems they work with

  • The full scope of architectural objectives – structural integrity, standardization, reusability, environmental fit, esthetics, and sustainability
  • A framework to ensure overall architectural completeness and success - business purpose, organization, integrated information, process and technology platforms
  • A framework to organize business components - performance, stakeholders, processes, rules and information
  • A framework to organize the organization - people, purpose, process and structure
