When contemplating data integration and business intelligence, most organizations think more about technology and apply an “application driven” approach similar to those designed for architecting operations systems. At Kindle Consulting, we believe in an "information driven" approach which focuses on the business decisions that the users and stakeholders need to make every day in order to operate their business successfully.
We believe that
> the right combination of tools,
> the critical elements of “people and process change”,
> a well-orchestrated Information Management strategy and
> a technology approach which enables iterative and agile delivery
are essential to the realization of measurable benefits from investments in business intelligence.
