Nice article. Another important dimension should be related to "Tool Availability", which would include: - Already part of the existing/supported enterprise tools? - License and/or hardware costs?

Another dimension to consider adding to the matrix: "Report Lifespan, as in how long do we need to keep this report?" Answers might include: 1) A few days 2) a few weeks or 3) a few months) 4) Destroy after Date == ddmmyyyy 5) Forever (depending on whether this report is actually needed as input for future analysis of decision-strategies or effectiveness of analytics on decision-making)
