It can be difficult for data professionals to transition into an agile way of thinking and way of working.  A big part of the problem is that the Agile Manifesto doesn’t address the enterprise issues that data professionals deal with on a daily basis.

The Agile Data (AD) method extends the Agile Manifesto.  First, it puts the agile mindset into terms familiar to data professionals.  Second, it extends the manifesto with philosophies that address the key concerns surrounding enterprise data.  In this session Scott Ambler overviews how to bring agile ways of thinking to the data world.
