Results: The results provide a framework that consists of six factors and thirty two sub factors for successful business intelligence system implementation. The six factors of success are information quality, system quality, service quality, individual impact and user quality. Conclusion: The findings in this study may allow the business intelligence community in South Africa to focus on those factors and sub factors identified as most likely to influence the implementation of BI systems.
