Abstract: There has been much focus on why companies should invest in Business Intelligence (BI) and there has been many contributions on the BI process, but there has been and continues to be less written on how to implement BI in the organization. A major question facing all organizations, both private and public, is where to place the BI or Competitive Intelligence (CI) function in the organization. This answer will depend on the effectiveness of each placement. The findings presented in this article build on a decade of observations and research in the implementation of Business Intelligence Systems. A series of seven models are presented with examples of actual use.
