Richards, Gregory, Yeoh, William and Wang, Shan 2011, An empirical study of BI-based corporate performance management in North America and East Asia, in AMCIS 2011 : Proceedings of the Americas Conference on Information Systems., AMCIS, [Detroit, Mich.], pp. 1-12.
Managing corporate performance is an important yet challenging process. Recently, many enterprises have adopted business intelligence (BI) tools to facilitate more effective corporate performance management. Based on a survey with 290 organizations across North America and East Asia, this paper presents empirical evidence on the key benefits of and barriers to BI-based corporate performance management (CPM). The study reveals that the implementation of BI-based CPM faces multi-dimensional challenges. Organizations in East Asia perceived higher CPM benefits as well as higher CPM barriers than their counterparts in North America. Cultural, economic and environmental differences between the two regions explain these issues. The research findings offer important insights for multinational organizations that are planning or are in the process of implementing or reviewing their BI-based CPM, as well as for consulting companies that are assisting with CPM implementation in different countries.
