—Despite of advancement in technology and the overwhelming acceptance of BI tools in enterprise world, human-computer interaction during strategic decision making process is still a question mark. This is so because BI–information flow is mainly derived more from data models than by management oriented decision models or knowledge management. Non-BI factors which greatly influence strategic decision making in real world are still overlooked or very vaguely defined. We describe a BI-Model in context of project upraising which supports non-BI factors concerning to particular business needs to make possible a seamless integration of technology into a logical business intelligence environment. Thus enable modeling management decisions and to map business intelligence, knowledge management, human intellect in traditional BI to develop a Real Business Intelligence. The study also encompasses some of the BI models/frameworks in perspective of non-BI and human-computer interaction. We compare our BI model with traditional BI frameworks, illustrating the importance of non-BI factors and share our experience and the lessons learned in architecting and implementing the framework.
