Agile BI: Just Enough Design, Data Modeling with Agility

Duration: One Day Course

Prerequisite: Agile Analytics: Value-Driven Data Warehousing and BI, or similar experience

Course Outline

Agilists criticize the “big design up front” (BDUF) nature of plan-driven development. Uncertainty early in a project makes BDUF costly and risky. However, the avoidance of BDUF is sometimes misconstrued to mean “no design up front,” which leads to poor quality and high technical debt. Experienced agilists know that what is truly needed is sufficient design up front (SDUF)—enough to galvanize developers around a shared understanding of the problem domain, architecture, and data models. This course introduces an agile modeling approach that strikes the sufficient-up-front and just-in-time balance.
