Like many technology-based projects, you get only one chance at implementing the SAS ® Enterprise BI Server at your organization. Coupled with a lack of knowledge about business intelligence, having to get it right the first time can make implementation a daunting task. In August 2010, the Office of Institutional Research at Western Kentucky University unveiled our portal using SAS Enterprise BI Server.
