Agile Business Intelligence (BI)
Agile business intelligence addresses a broad need to enable flexibility by accelerating the time it takes to deliver value with BI projects. It can include technology deployment options such as self-service BI, cloud-based BI, and data discovery dashboards that allow users to begin working with data more rapidly and adjust to changing needs.
To transform traditional BI project development to fit dynamic user requirements, many organizations implement formal methodologies that utilize agile software development techniques and tools to accelerate development, testing, and deployment. Ongoing scoping, rapid iterations that deliver working components, evolving requirements, scrum sessions, frequent and thorough testing, and business/development communication are important facets of a formal agile approach.
