In order to address the organizational, cultural and technological challenges in implementing BI, it is important for Indian organizations to understand the issues related to management context, situational factors and the systems and processes pertaining to Indian firms. This thought is pointed out and emphasized in this paper. Indian firms today have been finding ways to improve their business practices to gain competitive advantage. One of the most talked about information technology enabled business innovation is the emergence of Business Intelligence (BI). Indian organizations have always been oriented toward accumulating and applying knowledge to create economic value and competitive advantage and the need to do it has never been more.
