We measure number of reports; number of report requests; number of users; % of staff; number of times report is accessed; number of users trained; number of report writers trained; position on maturity curve (tdwi and gartner);average time to fullfill report request. Users don't yet write their own reports and we're about a year in to our service. Will be very interested in the report!

Ultimately, BI is a method and mechanism for packaging and delivering information. Therefore, the effect on business processes that consume this information must be measured to determine the true value of the BI solution. At Gartner we introduced this method over 10 years ago, and have further honed the discipline of information economics (infonomics) since that time. We believe all other measures are either a proxy for actual value or superfluous altogether. --Doug Laney, VP Research, Gartner, @doug_laney
