Traditional approaches to implementing data warehouses and business intelligence work from the bottom up in horizontal tiers, assembling and cleansing data sources from across the enterprise then aggregating them into a comprehensive data mart before reports can be generated. Some people are now employing an alternative approach that starts with the real outcome--a business decision--and pulls work items through the process as needed to support that decision. Decision driven business intelligence allows a more incremental approach to BI and facilitates rapid feedback to the decision makers who are the ultimate consumers of business intelligence.
