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.  

Business Intelligence System Features Importances

The "Importance Level" column enables you to easily specify HOW IMPORTANT each requirement is to your company in a consistent and quickly sorted way.  You can choose between the Importance Level options that best fit your project needs. Use 0 - 5, with 0 being not important at all.

BI System Features Categories

The next column to the right, titled "Process (Category)" below, enables you to enter user-defined codes that represent the business functions, processes or BI modules found in the Business Unit that is the subject of the Fit-GAP Analysis. This allows all Fit-GAP assessment results to be sorted and viewed using any special criteria needed to manage a particular BI project.

BI System Requirements Identification

The next column to the right, titled "GAP Analysis" below, enables you to designate just WHERE, WHEN, and HOW MUCH of a GAP exists between your organization's current BI needs and the business intelligence software system currently in use, and just as importantly, WHY. (See HOW Fit-GAP Analysis works and its benefits!)


BI Software Requirements Category

The column titled "GAP Source (Location)" below, enables you to designate just WHERE a GAP exists, i.e., is it a BI software deficiency or a business intelligence workflow/procedural problem. This knowledge is very useful when integrating a new software system with current business processes.

Business Intelligence Software Features Type

The column titled "REQUIREMENTS TYPE" below, enables you to designate the TYPE of GAP that exists between your organization's current BI needs and the software and/or the processes currently in use.

BI System Fit/GAP ANALYSIS - Sorting and Reporting

Quickly and Easily Sort and View Business Intelligence Fit/GAP assessment entries by industry standard and user-defined assessment code, as shown below. Now you can almost instantly view Fit-GAP assessments sorted by:

  • Importance Level (Priority)
  • Business Process, Department, Track, or Module
  • GAP Size
  • GAP Location
  • GAP Type
The "Process" column accepts user-defined codes to allow sorting of GAP assessments by any special project need that may come up, all on a mouse click.
