The DAMA Portland Chapter is dedicated to delivering thought provoking presentations that will make you more successful in your job. In July we look at Agile BI and Data Management. This month’s DAMA Topic is “BI: Let’s Be Agile All The Way”
Speed, flexibility and iterative development have become critical success factors in BI and Data Management as organizations realize that there is no such thing as "set in stone project plans". Now, agility shouldn't stop at the project management level, it should also be engrained in the tools, the data model designs and the processes. From reporting, to analysis, to the database all the way to data integration and master data management, teams should focus on creating agility all the way and carefully choosing solutions and partners accordingly.
What are the latest "agile" benchmarks, how to take advantage of new technologies, what are the impact on project design are among the discussion points that will be shared with the attendees.
Our Speaker, Gauthier Vasseur, is a great speaker and thought leader in BI. Although the topic is BI and Agile, you can get a lot of questions answered and learn some vital information.

There are several Conway buildings on Savier, but we meet in the big building most north, adjoining the large parking lot. There is plenty of parking in the big parking lot. You will see a Conway security guard when you enter, who will give you a visitor sticker, tell you in which room the meeting is, and then have you sign in. We generally meet in the St John's conference room or in the East Ballroom.
