Topic:

THE QUICK PATH TO 3X SPEED AND ZERO DEFECTS FOR EDW TEAMS

 

The agile methods one learns from a text book or a generic agile coach do not work well for systems with multi-layered architectures, such as data warehouses. These demanding applications require the agile practitioner to add or adapt dozens of standard techniques. Behind all the do’s and don’ts involved, however, lie three fundamental practices that make agile development for data management and business intelligence systems possible:
· 80/20 requirements
· Surface solutions with architectural backfilling
· Test-led development with automated validation scripts
This half-day presentation will introduce agile development in general and then focus upon how these three practices make incremental delivery feasible for enterprise data warehousing. We will see how teams can move faster and more accurately with a lighter approach to requirements, a series of partial deliverables, and the nightly reapplication of a steadily-growing integration test suite.
The presenter will share several case histories where agile data warehousing more than tripled a team’s delivery speed while simultaneously driving the defect rate to zero. We’ll also look at how project architects can readily incorporate big data technologies into an integrated, iterative approach for business intelligence.
