Abstract

Business Intelligence (BI) initiatives are challenging tasks, implying significant costs in their implementation. Therefore, organizations have adopted prudent policies requiring a financial justification. A business-driven methodology is recommended in any BI project initiative, project scoping and planning being vital for the project success. A business-driven approach of a BI project implementation starts with a feasibility study. The decision-making process for large projects is very complicated, and will not be subject of this paper. Having in mind a middle-sized BI project, a feasibility study based on the Monte Carlo simulation method will be conducted. A SaaS BI initiative versus a traditional one will be taken into consideration.
