"Cindi has created, with her typical attention to details that matter, a contemporary forward-looking guide that organizations could use to evaluate existing or create a foundation for evolving business intelligence / analytics programs. The book touches on strategy, value, people, process, and technology, all of which must be considered for program success. Among other topics, the data, data warehousing, and ROI comments were spot on. The 'technobabble' chapter was brilliant!" Bill Frank, Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing Program Manager, Johnson & Johnson
