A critical success factor for successful adaptation of Business Intelligence (BI) in organizations is proven results in a relatively short period of time. To maintain executive buy-in and funding it is often required for BI projects to show results in 90-120 days. For solutions with Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft or Siebel CRM the choice of using Oracle BI applications is a simple one due to the high degree of match to the data from the source systems. These solutions enable rapid return on investment providing comprehensive BI solutions based on best practices in a much quicker timeframe than what could be delivered through custom development. However, can efficiencies also be achieved when the source system is not closely aligned with the BI application?
