This research identifies the key components necessary for the integration of business intelligence (BI) into the design of information systems (IS) applications, which are used to develop a new framework for integrating BI into IS design (FIBIISD). The research observed a trend, whereby, the design of BI is treated as an afterthought to the design of IS applications. Currently, BI requirements are given almost negligible consideration during the design of IS applications. Bf requirements are considered, when stakeholder groups of the already implemented IS applications begin to make demands for capabilities to report, inquire, analyse, synthesise or explore information held in such IS applications. Thus, BI design is done, mostly, after the design and implementation of Is applications. Often, when a number of disparate IS applications have been in use for a while and are generating varieties of data at high volumes and velocity. Such approach to BJ design creates many problems that may not be immediately understood or appreciated by either the designers or the many stakeholder groups involved in taking business actions, making business decisions and managing business performance. The question this research sought to answer was whether BI requirements could be considered during the IS application design phase? Therefore, the research combined practical observations with the examination of published literature from academia and industry. The focus of such practical observations and literature review converged on the need to integrate BI requirements into the design of IS applications.
