Agile Analytics: Value-Driven Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence

Using agile methods, you can bring far greater innovation, value, and quality to any data warehouse, business intelligence, or analytics project. However, conventional agile methodologies must be carefully adapted to address the unique characteristics of BI/DW projects. In this workshop, agile pioneer Ken Collier shows how to do just that. Collier introduces a platform-agnostic collection of agile techniques and practices for delivering business intelligence value early and continuously throughout a BI/DW project. The techniques introduced in this workshop include agile management methods such as agile project management, customer and team collaboration, user stories and backlog management, and enabling self-organizing teams. Also covered are agile technical methods such as evolutionary data warehouse design, test-driven data warehousing, and project automation. This workshop is presented as a simulation of an actual data warehousing and business intelligence project. Participants will work collaboratively with others to gain hands-on experience in the agile analytics methods described in Kens book, Agile Analytics: A Value-Driven Approach to Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing (Addison-Wesley Professional, 2011). Workshop participants will obtain an accurate introductory understanding of the important values, principles, and practices that make up the agile analytics approach.
