Abstract: Global companies recently invested heavily in business intelligence (BI) with an expectation of achieving a long-term BI-enabled success. However, there is little statistical evidence in the past research to answer the following two questions: 1) which factors provide BI-enabled success in global companies?; 2) what is an acceptable model for achieving BI-enabled success? The study identifies three important factors that influence BI-enabled success in companies. We build a structural model to answer the above questions for global companies. The study concludes with important managerial implications.

Keywords: business intelligence; data warehouse; DW; information technology; IT; structural equation model; SEM.
