In his first keynote ‘Agile Methods and Data Warehousing: How to Deliver Faster’ Kent Graziano will look at the 12 principles behind the Agile Manifesto and see how they might be applied in the context of a data warehouse project. Most people will agree that data warehousing and business intelligence projects take too long to deliver tangible results. Often by the time a solution is in place, the business needs have changed. With all the talk about Agile development methods like SCRUM and Extreme Programming, the question arises as to how these approaches can be used to deliver data warehouse and business intelligence projects faster. Real world examples with metrics will be discussed.
In his second session ‘Data Warehousing in Today and Beyond’ Kent Graziano looks the changing world of data warehousing. With the advent of Big Data, Streaming Data, IoT, and The Cloud, what is a modern data management professional to do? It may seem to be a very different world with different concepts, terms, and techniques. This talk will endeavor to cut through the hype and the buzzword bingo to help you figure out what part of this is helpful.
