  • List all government BI regulatory requirements.
  • Determine business specifications.
  • Compile BI reporting capabilities in detail.
  • Identify external 3rd party financial interface needs.
  • Document all BI workflow processes step by step.
  • Specify database business capabilities.
  • Create BI system requirements specifications / questions one to one.

This business intelligence software requirements checklist covers thousands BI criteria, tasks, and processes, and is certified to cover all industry standard requirements.  The main Table of Contents (TOC) shown below illustrates the broad range of requirements included in this interactive tool.

All BI user needs and requirements can be quickly identified using this detailed BI requirements checklist. This checklist utilizes thousands of BI criteria in conjunction with full Fit-GAP capabilities to ensure that all the hidden "exception case" requirements lurking in every organization's workflow and operating procedures are also identified.  Good examples are rules that start with "It is always done this way except when...", or that "This particular customer gets an extra 5% off".  This checklist tool is designed to help identify those important but hard-to-find requirements crucial for a new system to be implemented on-time and under-budget.
