AgileBI, Concepts, Processes and Templates


There are a number of books available that provide insight into Agile in the context of Data Warehouse, Analytics or Business Intelligence projects.  My favourites are below, buy them and encourage these gurus to write more.

There are also a number of thought leaders around the world in the Agile domain as well as in the Business Intellgence, Data and Analytcs domains.  A number of these are very kind and share their ideas and approaches on a regular basis via blogs and online articles.  A list of the gurus I look upto are here:  Leveraging the collective knowledge of others

But what I hare found is missing is a mashup of all these ideas, concepts and approaches onto something that explains the What, Why and How to use Agile to deliver Business Intelligence projects from the beginning to the end.

This site is the live draft of such a mash up.  It is based upon my experience running AgileBI training workshops and coaching customer teams on how to deliver using these techniques.

It leverages the work done by the Agile and BI gurus from around the globe, as I constantly read and digest thier work, adapting it to solve the problems my customers encounter, or a jumpstart to the next level of AgileBI maturity.  Augmented with “war stories”  and experiences I have encountered delivering BI with Agility in New Zealand.

To deliver this I have focussed on the Concepts, Processes and where possible the templates you need to deliver BI with Agility.

As I draft the content map and each chapter and page of the book I will publishing each of them in their raw state.  Then I will update, change, rewrite and refine them as I go.

Be warned I am notorious for bad speelling and bad gramma.  If you see words that don’t make sense in-between these [[ ]], they are my notes to remind me to add more content in that section.

I give my thanks to those gurus that have been gracious to allow there ideas to be leveraged in this site and shared with the world via a channel other than their own websites, books and courses.
