DA 210 – Disciplined Agile Data Warehousing (DW)/Business Intelligence (BI)

Organizations want to gain the benefits of agile – greater quality, improved stakeholder satisfaction, faster delivery, and higher productivity – on their Data Warehouse (DW)/Business Intelligence (BI) teams.  Very often people start with Scrum, but they quickly discover that to make Scrum work for Agile DW/BI it needs to be significantly extended to address the challenges of DW/BI teams.  These extensions include initial planning, initial requirements elicitation, initial architecture modeling, agile data modeling throughout construction, continuous database development, and streamlined deployment activities to name a few.  The Disciplined Agile Framework (DA) has already done this extension work to address the challenges faced by DW/BI teams.  Furthermore, because DA seamlessly supports both Scrum-based and continuous delivery strategies it is suitable for DW/BI teams new to agile as well as experienced teams looking to improve their approach.  This workshop teaches you the techniques required to make agile DW/BI teams successful.  An important aspect of this workshop is working through a DW/BI-specific case study.
