Gauging the Possibilities by David A. Kelly

Saving money and resources wherever and whenever possible is always sound business practice. One smart way to allocate assets is to identify projects that offer a good return on investment (ROI) without extensive up-front costs.

That’s where a business impact model (BIM) comes in.

A BIM is a key component of the business value consulting process that helps organizations create business cases around the application of specific technology and solutions. The deliverables from a Teradata BIM engagement, for example, usually include a customized business case—typically presented in slides or spreadsheets—that estimates and quantifies a solution’s potential benefits.

A BIM will identify opportunities such as increased revenues, decreased operating expenses, reduced working capital and improved profitability, as well as the ROI of a technology investment. While Teradata’s process is formalized and built on years of best practices and ongoing analysis, it’s also customized for each organization’s specific needs and statement of work.
