Traditionalists believe that it isn’t possible to deliver value to the business through the agile methodology on enterprise data warehousing (EDW) projects. However, we may still be riding around on a horse and cart if we didn’t challenge ‘the accepted’.  I’m not only going to challenge, but also illustrate how moving to agile will increase user adoption and ultimately the success of the EDW projects.
Agile software development has quickly proven its value in delivering high quality applications that meet customer needs. When it comes to meeting the customer’s needs EDW projects often fail to meet expectations, as research has illustrated time and time again. Interestingly, ‘Agile’ is not widely adapted as a…

The following is a partner blog by Anne Sutanto, Marketing Manager at IBSolution GmbH
