Listing BI frontends
The first order of thing is to do get an idea of the outline of all BI front-end tools that are at your disposal in general from a particular BI dealer. The best way to go about this is interact with people, follow blog chats and make a list of all the reliable names you come across.
Separate the ‘in scope’ from the ‘out of scope’
Based on the environment you have, you can first make a rough selection of tools and separate them to form two categories of ‘in-scope and ‘out-scope’. In-scope is those tools that are not entirely out of scope. And Out-scope refers to tools that help you eliminate the BW tools in case you do not have a SAP BW source.
Now once the above work is done, it is easier to build a working model.
Selection of tools
Now you must choose tools that cover all of your or at least most of your requirements. For this to be you need to have a lucid understanding of the problems that your organisation that needs to be solved with BI. Here you also need to trust your gut feeling. Also once this is done, select the required tools that will cover the leftover needs for your problem-solving task.
Validate the working model
Now to get to know the compatibility of your selected tools with the organisational environment, do a hands-on test with the tool. This will tell just how valid your tools are for any situation. If this checks out then for newer requirement add tools to this original hierarchy. However if you fail the test for say, 30% the remove a tool and add one but in case you fail by more than that like say, 50% then start from scratch and build a new working model.
