Presentation:
“Writing User Stories and Slicing Epics for DW/BI Teams”
Lynn Winterboer - Agile Analytics Trainer & Coach, Winterboer Agile Analytics.
Abstract
Agile is all the rage in software development, and many DW/BI professionals are interested in leveraging Agile approaches to change the way they deliver to their organizations.  One of the first things we learn on Agile is replacing “requirements” with “user stories”, yet the examples provided are usually not relevant to the data world.  Lynn will share how to write user stories for a DW/BI project that are architecturally complete.  She will also explain how to identify an “epic” and slice it into achievable, valuable user stories.

2:30 – 2:45 PM

Break

 2:45 – 3:45 PM

Presentation:
“Managed BI in the Age of Self-Service and Big Data”
Scot Reagin - Director and Principal Business Intelligence Architect, RevGen Partners.
Abstract
