The University of the West Indies is a regional higher education institution based in the Caribbean. In its strategic plan 2012–17, the UWI recognizes the importance of leveraging ICT to gain a competitive advantage, improve decision-making processes, and become an information-driven organization. This comes at a time when the organization faces increased competition, severe resource constraints, and economic and political pressures to perform. We will illustrate using an example from the UWI–St. Augustine campus how an organization can successfully implement a BI system in face of challenges inherent in business intelligence.
