    Sixteen years ago the ‘Agile Manifesto’ was written out of a “need for an alternative to documentation driven, heavyweight software development processes”[1]… but since then, the word “agile” has been confused with a synonym for project management, and it seems that teams are struggling to catch up to “modern” overhead in the name of “Agile” instead of having the freedom to focus on delivering value.  

    In this session, using the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of agility (“marked by ready ability to move with quick easy grace”[2]), we will explore agility in the BI and data space and how it can actually work.  We’ll dive into the product thinking framework we’ve used to help data product and business intelligence teams get clear on their goals and then move toward them with clear focus and low overhead.  I will share the background for our framework (as well as some non tech examples that support our approach) and share some actual examples of how some of our teams have employed it to deliver measurable impact, howe we measure and secrets to BI agility.

    Getting software released to users is often a painful, risky, and time-consuming process. The practice of continuous delivery sets out the principles and technical practices that enable rapid, low-risk delivery of high quality, valuable new functionality to users. Through automation of the build, deployment, and testing process, and improved collaboration between developers, testers and IT operations, teams can get changes released in a matter of hours—sometimes even minutes—no matter what the size of the product or the complexity of the enterprise environment.

    In this workshop, Jez Humble presents an in-depth guide to the principles and practices behind continuous delivery and the DevOps movement, along with case studies from real companies and ideas to help you adopt continuous delivery and DevOps within your organization. You’ll start by learning the value proposition and the foundations that enable continuous delivery, followed by an introduction to the pattern at the heart of continuous delivery–the deployment pipeline. The training then dives into the key development practices of continuous integration and comprehensive test automation. These lessons cover change management, agile infrastructure management, managing databases, architecture, and the patterns that enable low-risk releases. They conclude by discussing the culture and organizational change patterns of high performing companies. After taking this training, you will understand not just the principles and practices that enable continuous delivery and devops, but also how they are implemented in high performing organizations. With this knowledge you’ll be ready to transform your organization’s software delivery capability to get high quality solutions to market fast, while reducing the risk of the release process.
