Which Functional Aspects Does the BI Questionnaire Cover?

The questionnaire for Business Intelligence Systems (BI questionnaire) is part of the System questionnaires, which together form the basis of the »Logistics IT database« provided by Fraunhofer IML.

In addition to general aspects about the company, the BI questionnaire also covers the company’s range of services and experiences. However, the focus of the BI questionnaire is on the functional support of data collection, preparation and presentation. Here, the parameters for the collection and storage of data in the data warehouse and the data analysis based on it are determined. Furthermore, the options for the presentation of key figures in accordance with the requirements of the industry, the business unit or the hierarchical level are recorded.

This results in a level of detail that reflects both the individual requirements of the user and the functional capabilities of the BI solutions. Typical questions are for example

  • What data extraction options are available for the data warehouse?
  • Does your system support the creation of individual queries by using drag&drop?
  • What options does the system offer for making dashboards available to other people?

Scope of functions of the BI Questionnaire

In addition, the questionnaire collects a variety of other information relating to developments, trends and assessments of the respective company in the BI market.

The questionnaire is adapted and/or extended annually according to the latest requirements and developments. In addition to project experience, feedback from the users of the database (BI providers, BI users and consulting companies) is also used for this purpose.

Validation and Use of the Data

The data provided by a Logistics IT provider vendor is not added to the Database or made available for use by »Logistics IT Online Selection« until it has been successfully validated. The annual updating of the questionnaire combined with the yearly validation of the data is what guarantees that the data is always up to date.
