A Disciplined Hybrid Method

Data warehouse (DW) teams face increasing demands for productivity and top-quality data delivery within strict timelines. Timely provision of accurate data is crucial for both human decision-makers and machine learning (ML) applications.

HIGHLIGHTS

Participants will gain valuable insights into Agile DW team roles, effective organizational strategies, practical solutions for common challenges, integration of agile methodologies, initial requirements modeling, DataOps practices, and lean governance strategies for successful team management.
