Agile methods are now well established for transactional applications, but their appropriateness for data warehouse automation projects is still hotly debated. In this presentation, Ralph Hughes, a veteran agile practitioner, outlines the strategies he employs to make incremental data warehousing imminently doable.
In this session, Ralph describes how teams can accelerate enterprise data warehousing via three means:
- An iterative and incremental delivery method that eliminates the need for lengthy specification efforts
- A new generation of data management products to dramatically reduce the amount of hand-coded objects required
- Techniques for steadily evolving the end-user’s data rather than focusing solely on the transformation code
Discover how, when braided together, these three threads yield an Agile Data Warehousing for enterprise-class programs that in a benchmark project drove quality defects to zero while increasing programmer productivity by a factor of three.
