Abstract: Reporting is very important in the enterprise information processes and it is very much essential for decision making. Finding the user's current requirements and preference and then providing information accordingly could be a challenging task. An efficient information delivery strategy should provide the suitable information to suitable user according to various criteria. The information which is customised based on the criteria should be delivered at the right time for decision making. Bankruptcy prediction analysis (BPA) consists of different number of users with requirement to different levels of information. The proposed information delivery strategy customises the information, resolves inconsistency and uncertainty issues and finds the suitable user to receive the information with respect to criteria using fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (fuzzy AHP). The different level user preference (most suitable user to least suitable user) has been identified according to the criteria using this strategy to deliver the multi criteria reporting.
