Overview:BI projects often focus on setting up a data warehouse making sure all data is centralized and available in a format to facilitate reporting and analysis. Nothing wrong there.
However, almost never serious thought is given to establish a reporting (visualisation) strategy which results in a report clutter. Business users will be confused and uncertain about what is reported and IT is confronted with maintaining a continious growing number of reports.
Business Visibility : Turn data into information using visualisation techniques
A visualisation strategy consists of :
a framework to ensure the business objective of each report
a corporate stylesheet to ensure consistency in report development
a process to ensure that quality guidelines are followed
a process to ensure that the audience keeps on receiving the information needed
