As the director of business information services at Office Depot, Brad Ferguson oversaw a variety of business intelligence (BI) initiatives that delivered and maintained a data integration and reporting analytics infrastructure for 20,000 users. Now a consultant for Meridian Partners, Ferguson helps companies within Meridian’s SAP practice get the most out of their own enterprise data warehouse (EDW) and BI projects.

In this interview, Ferguson shares his thoughts on the common drivers for BI initiatives and offers several keys to success for BI projects.
