Scalability and flexibility of a software determines the longevity of the software. Opt for a scope that is too narrow, and you could see your BI strategy hit a roadblock in just a few years (or even months) as data sources grow and your company requirements change. Start out by considering how much data you’ll have in the next 3 years.
