With Business Intelligence (BI) fast becoming a top priority for most enterprises, achieving RoI through BI implementation has come as a major challenge for IT leaders. While many CIOs plan to invest in BI in near future, most of them fear BI failure.

Enterprises from across the globe continue to wrestle with data expansion proliferating in terms of size, complexity and sources. In order to support this, IT teams are investing in IT systems to keep up with Data Quality (DQ) – whether delivered on-premise, or through managed services or cloud services.
