A Business Intelligence and Performance Management initiative should be seen as a journey and not as an ad-hoc initiative, so in order to be successful it requires that the direction is clearly set from the beginning and that it relies on solid foundations.
So even before to start the initial project of that journey it is fundamental to define the roadmap which will drive that journey as well as the architecture on which it will rely on. This initial investment to think about the architecture and the roadmap will pay back during the entire Business Intelligence and Performance Management journey.
