Ralph Hughes, President and Chief Systems Architect of Ceregenics will teach a training course in Agile Data Warehousing in Santa Clara, CA on March 11 and 12. The author of the first book on this subject, Agile Data Warehousing(2008) Hughes has twenty-five year's experience as both data warehouse architect and project manager for data warehousing/business intelligence (DWBI) applications for organizations in both the public and private sectors.
“This course is ideal for business intelligence professionals whose organizations have a burning need for management information and want to see actionable data online next month, not next year.“ says Hughes. “The course is designed for all active members of a data warehousing team, not just developers, but those with technical leadership positions including systems architects, data models, ETL designers. Many of the topics covered will be of value to project sponsors and managers.”
The course begins by thoroughly familiarizing participants with two popular Agile approaches, SCRUM and Extreme Programming (XP) and then details how to blend the two into a formal software development methodology for data warehousing and business intelligence (BI) projects. The result is not only the fastest possible method for building a quality data warehouse, but can also pass a formal methodological audit such as CMMI.
