There is unanimous agreement among “agile” authors, experts, and practitioners that agile development works for building small stand-alone systems, including front-end BI applications. However, there is considerable disagreement among the experts whether “agile” can work for large, complex systems like an Enterprise Data Warehouse, which requires an Enterprise perspective for activities like data standardization, data integration, enterprise data modeling, business rules ratification, coordinated ETL data staging, common meta data, collectively architected (designed) databases, and so on. Today’s popular agile methodologies do not take any of these additional DW-specific complexities and interdependencies into account. However, the presenter’s 7-step Extreme ScopingTM approach does.
