Agile business intelligence addresses a broad need to improve the nimbleness of any development organization by decreasing the time it takes to deliver value with BI projects. This can be accomplished by changes to either technology or methodology.
Technology options include 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.
Methodology options include transformation of traditional BI project development to fit dynamic user requirements. Many organizations implement methodologies that utilize Agile software development frameworks and tools to accelerate development, testing, and deployment. Progressive elaboration of requirements, rapid iterations that deliver working components, testing during the development iterations, and increased communication between the business and development are important facets of an Agile approach.
Our presentation will focus on what Agile is, how an organization can harness Agile in the BI space, and how the practices of using Agile BI to complement traditional BI can improve your BI delivery and relationship between the business and development teams.
