A Business Intelligence (BI) system can provide information in a reliable, instantaneous and automatic way in order to support crucial decisions of companies as well as of governments. The first step for the implementation of a BI system is the development of the ontology, which can be performed via an institutional glossary. However, usually the line between the ontology and the BI system is not direct, and therefore the implementation of the BI system may be slow. In this paper, we show the application of concept maps for BI system implementation. We exemplify this application using the study case of the implementation of the BI system for the Federal Property Department (SPU), which belongs to the Ministry of Planning, Budget and Management (MP) in Brazil. Besides the efficient implementation via concept maps, the impacts of our proposed BI systems are also highlighted in this paper.
