Become a data-driven business, build strategic analytical and information delivery expertise and drive business innovation.
The Business Intelligence Competency Center (BICC Knowledge System) is a system organized to support all aspects of BI for an enterprise. It is an organizational structure that groups people with interrelated disciplines, domains of knowledge, experiences, and skills for the purpose of promoting expertise throughout the organization. BICC serves as a collaboration and knowledge management system to support BI where the tasks associated with BI initiatives are prioritized, defined, directed and implemented.

With proper planning, an effective BICC Knowledge System acts as a central hub through which all organizational BI initiatives unite and thrive in the face of rapid business and IT innovation. The BICC provides access to relevant information and best practices while successfully assembling people, strategy, process, architecture and software for the benefit of the whole.
The concept of the BICC is relatively new. Challenges faced by early adopters in implementing these centers have included everything from a lack of business strategy continuity and thought leadership to poor governance and user adoption. An insufficiently planned and managed BICC initiative can go adrift as technology and organizational environments rapidly change. What once seemed productive and cutting edge can become dated, fragmented, expensive, and unmanageable.

Gartner has recommended that organizations take a more strategic approach to the role of the BICC, advancing or re-vamping your BICC program from a more tactical focus centered around improving efficiencies of report developers (which still remains an important aspect to BICC), to one which focuses more on driving out the strategic opportunities that next generation analytical and data warehousing platforms are capable of.
