From the Paper:

"Three of the companies were in periods of ongoing growth in relation to the evolution of data warehousing and its use within the companies while one company was still in the initiation-early deployment phase. While it would appear that some were in the maturity stage, most had specific plans for using the data warehouse as the basis for launching new business activities and strategies. On the basis of this evidence, it is particularly important to note that even during the initiation phase, it was possible for companies to begin to recognize gains in competitive advantage, which further supports the potential for data warehousing to aid businesses in gaining competitive ground."
