Applying Agile to Analytics and BI

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?

Myths and misconceptions about Agile abound. No, it is not a “cowboy” style development where you forget about all documentation, do things quickly in an ad hoc manner and lose sight of the end goal.

The paradox of Agile is that it is simple, but it is not easy. It is built on a simple set of sensible values and principles, but it requires a high degree of discipline and commitment to execute properly.

The rewards of Agile can be great – high-quality and high-value working systems, increased visibility and productivity, motivated teams and, most importantly, satisfied and happy users.

If you are looking to improve the way you do Analytics and BI and you want to learn about effective application of Agile principles and practices, the benefits they can bring, and how to begin that journey – then this seminar is for you. It will provide a solid introduction into Agile and practical information on how to apply it to Analytics and BI.

The next date for this seminar is to be advised.
