Abstract

Information technology (IT) and performance measurement are of rising value in globally connected supply chains. This results in the increasing implementation of business intelligence (BI) applications to enhance information exploitation as strategic and operational competitive advantages. To estimate the degree of maturity in supply chains as well as for BI solutions, maturity models are used. There exist numerous specific maturity models for supply chains, also in strong interrelationship with investigations on evolution stages of supply chains. Furthermore, certain BI maturity models are covering different perspectives to assess the degree of BI utilization in companies. The aim of this paper is two-folded. First, maturity dimensions should be isolated and extracted from given models. Second, a joint maturity approach by merging key dimensions of supply chain and BI maturity for BI-driven supply chains will be developed. In this context, BI-driven supply chains are a summarizing term for advanced supply chains in which efforts to base decisions on joint KPIs and metrics are strengthened as well as joint planning and collaborative forecasting activities are executed. Contribution to research is made by the combination of supply chain and BI maturity approaches.

Key words: Supply chain management, maturity models, business intelligence
