Applying Agile to Analytics and BI

Agile has been successfully embedded into software development for several years now. Its adoption in the fields of Analytics, Business Intelligence (BI) and Data Warehousing (DW) has not been as extensive or successful. Is it because what we do is so different that Agile has no place in our world? Or is it simply due to shortage of information and guidance on how to apply Agile principles and practices to Analytics and BI?

Audience: 
Anyone who wants to know about Agile and how to apply Agile principles and practices to Analytics and BI. This seminar will provide practical information relevant to managers and team leaders as well as developers and analysts.
