In the era of data explosion, organizations highly focus on the systematic management of business information. Various BI models exist for this purpose but the reliability of those models is questionable due to less focus on technical aspects. The purpose of this research is to build comprehensive and reliable Enterprise Business Intelligence Maturity (EBIM) model by using systematic and methodical design. This research investigated and explained problems of existing BI models and solved them by using systematic process through Delphi technique. Three dimensions namely process, technology and organization were considered to develop a mature model. This research concluded that comprehensiveness and reliability of EBIM model enable BI organizations to better plan, assess, and manage their BI initiatives.
