Are these really “Business Requirements”?

Indeed these are REAL business needs and feature requests. Experienced consultants have conceptualized and created the BI Transformation Business Requirements List. The operational requirements encompass all critical areas of Business Intelligence and related functions.

How should we use the Business Intelligence Business Requirements deliverable?

More often than not, in every significant (and sometimes medium-sized) enterprise, a cross-functional team of business/technology/architecture teams spend countless hours in conference rooms trying to whiteboard and write business requirements from scratch. The more time they devote to the core and standard needs, the more likely they will miss out on something unique, accurate and relevant to the firm. Instead, using CIOPages.com BI transformation business requirements, you can focus on what’s different and unique about your situation. That is, you can spend 90% of your time on 10% of the requirements that matter. And only 10% of your time on the 90% of elements that are table stakes.

But, our Company is Unique – will it fit us?

Of course, you are unique but not as unique as a unicorn!
We understand and acknowledge each company is slightly different regarding some capabilities as well as how they perform. However, while there may be divergence at the edges, there is a lot of convergence at the core of most firms. The differences may be in the relative emphasis on a few fundamental processes and absence or presence of specific requirements and workflows based on your unique needs.
Last but not least, we don’t expect our Business Intelligence and Data Analytics Systems Transformation Business Requirements (or any other matrix/template, in fact) to fit you 100%. We hope you to take this set of requirements as a straw model or a base set of elements, and use it as a springboard to achieve the level customization and specificity in business requirements you desire.

If you need professional services to tailor the requirements to your needs and capture your firm’s unique essence, we can help. Contact Us for Advisory Service details.

But, we have a BI Business Requirements Matrix already?

Well, in that case, either you can go with it, or if you need to validate and cross-reference, you will still find our business requirements matrix valuable. After all, the price is less than the one-hour of time spent on the combined brainpower assembled in the room.

What is my ROI?

The Value of Time Spent:

Typically, it takes a team of 5-7 associates to draft the set of business requirements.

  • A Product Manager
  • Business Analysts
  • BI and DA Functional Experts – 2 or 3 to represent the broad spectrum of areas.

You can multiply the average hourly cost of the team and the hours spent, and you’ll get the picture.

Opportunity Cost:

In addition to the time spent and the associated costs of drafting routine requirements, you also have to consider the opportunity cost.
By quickly adding/deleting/modifying the base set of requirements, it will allow you the luxury of spending the balance of your quality time in conceptualizing and crafting the unique and specific Business Requirements, which capture the essence of your company and its BI/DA practices, principles, and perspectives.
Of course, let’s not forget the “Day Job” each of the SMEs (subject matter experts) could be doing.


Instead of spending countless hours stretched across weeks or months, you can have a baseline of requirements in a couple of sittings. That helps you expedite and accelerate the transformation.

Product FAQs:

Can I see a Sample Deliverable?

We are sorry, but we cannot send or show sample deliverables. There are two reasons: A) The deliverables are our intellectual property, and we cannot share the same. B) While you may be a genuine buyer, our experience in the past has not been great with too many browsers and not many buyers. We believe the depth of the information in the product description and the snippets we provide are sufficient to understand the scope and quality of our products.

When can I access my deliverables?

We process each transaction manually and hence, processing a deliverable may take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a day. The reason is to ensure appropriate licensing and also validating the deliverables.

Where can I access my deliverables?

Your best bet is to log in to the portal and download the products from the included links. The links do not expire.

Are there any restrictions on Downloads?

Yes. You can only download the products three times. We believe that is sufficient for any genuine usage situation. Of course, once you download, you can save electronic copies to your computer or a cloud drive.

Can I share or sell the deliverables with anyone?

You can share the deliverables within a company for proper use. You cannot share the deliverables outside your company. Selling or giving away free is prohibited, as well.

Can we talk to you on the phone?

Not generally. Compared to our professional services fee, the price of our products is a fraction of what we charge for custom work. Hence, our business model does not support pre-sales support.

Do you offer orientation or support to understand and use your deliverables?

Yes, for a separate fee. You can hire our consultants for remote help and in some cases for onsite assistance. Please Contact Us.
