Business Value Index (BVI)

Business Value Index (BVI) is a composite index of factors that impact the value of an IT investment. It evaluates IT investments along three vectors: IT business value (that is, impact on Intel’s business), impact on IT efficiency, and the financial attractiveness of an investment. All three factors use a predetermined set of defining criteria that includes customer need, business and technical risks, strategic fit, revenue potential, level of required investment, the innovation and learning generated, and other factors. Each factor’s criteria are weighted according to the ongoing Business Strategy and business environment—changes in business strategy could change how criteria are weighted for different factors. [1]

The predefined criteria include, but are not limited to:

  • Customer need
  • Business and technical risks
  • Strategic fit
  • Revenue potential
  • Level of required investment
  • Amount of innovation and learning generated
