Summary

Agile methodologies such as Scrum are popular and effective approaches to software development that focus on creating a high value, maintainable product quickly through iterative development and close collaboration between the team and the customers. This approach enables rapid delivery and development along with flexibility and a focus on delivering high value features. Agile methodologies are used everywhere from start-ups to the Department of Defense. These methodologies work great for standard software development… but what about Data Warehousing projects? This presentation will address the hotly debated topic of how well these approaches fit Data Warehousing, why many people fail, and what you can do to succeed and reap the benefits.

What You Will Learn 

This presentation will provide real world examples, learnings and strategies for using an Agile methodology to build an Enterprise Data Warehouse. The talk will focus on using Scrum (one flavor of Agile) that is well suited to the task. 

The topics we will cover include: 

  • What Agile is 
  • When you want to use Agile 
  • What you need in to do for it to be successful 
  • What common challenges you will need to consider
