Foreword In today's highly competitive and increasingly uncertain world, the quality and timeliness of an organization's "business intelligence" (BI) can mean not only the difference between profit and loss but even the difference between survival and bankruptcy. In helping senior executives and information technology (IT) managers, Moss and Atre's greatest contribution, I believe, is the comprehensive nature of their "roadmap"; as the subtitle of their book promises, they have provided a complete project lifecycle for the development of such systems.

The Traditional Development Approach Since BI is an enterprise-wide evolving environment that is continually improved and enhanced based on feedback from the business community, the system development practices of the past are inadequate and inappropriate. In the past, systems were never designed or built with integration in mind. Every system had a beginning and an end, and every system was designed to solve only one isolated problem for one set of business people from one line of business. The old "single-swim-lane" development practices were suitable for such static stand-alone systems.

Some project teams may choose to roll up project activities from multiple development steps into one step, while other project teams may not need to perform some steps or activities at all.
