However, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) have yet opportunities to take advantage of them; this is the case of the implementation and usage of business intelligence (BI), which is a term that encompasses applications, tools, and methodologies that support decision-making process at a managerial level. Nevertheless, so far there is not a clear approach for its adoption in SMEs, for this reason, this work aims to identify the main factors involved in Business Intelligence implementation in SMEs through a literature review. Information for the analysis was gathered from scientific databases.
