James Dixon’s thoughts on commercial open source and open source business intelligence

Using or thinking about agile approaches for a BI project?

leave a comment »

As part of our Agile BI initiative I am gathering data about the current use of agile methodologies for BI projects. What has been your usage or thoughts of agile?

Question 1

Question 2

There are different kinds of agile methodologies. In the simple agile approach every iteration has the same structure and produces the same kinds of deliverable (reports and cubes that users can access). In an Agile Unified Process the iterations come in phases – requirements/inception, design/elaboration, build/construction, deploy/transition – in each phase the iterations produce different deliverables.

Question 3

Agile teams are small and cross-functional. Who do you have on your agile BI teams?

Thanks for participating. For more information on our agile BI initiative:
