    Enterprise architecture can potentially promote a common business vision within your organization, provide guidance to improve both business and IT decision making, and improve IT efficiencies. Unfortunately many enterprise architecture teams struggle to provide these benefits, often due to following an onerous and heavy process. The adoption of disciplined agile and lean strategies which are based on collaboration, enablement, and streamlining the flow of work are the keys to enterprise architecture success. In this workshop students will learn how to take an agile/lean approach to applying the architectural views and strategies promoted in enterprise architecture and governance frameworks such as TOGAF, Zachman, and COBIT.

    This one-day workshop is not technical. Many group exercises reinforce the principles learned.


    Audience

    • Enterprise architects tasked with moving from traditional approaches to agile/lean strategies.
    • Enterprise architects new to agile who want to learn how they can support agile development teams
    • Application/solution architects who want to become enterprise architects

    Organizations want to gain the benefits of agile – greater quality, improved stakeholder satisfaction, faster delivery, and higher productivity – on their Data Warehouse (DW)/Business Intelligence (BI) teams. Very often people start with Scrum, but they quickly discover that to make Scrum work for Agile DW/BI it needs to be significantly extended to address the challenges of DW/BI teams. These extensions include initial planning, initial requirements elicitation, initial architecture modeling, agile data modeling throughout construction, continuous database development, and streamlined deployment activities to name a few. The Disciplined Agile Delivery Framework (DAD) has already done this extension work to address the challenges faced by DW/BI teams. Furthermore, because DAD seamlessly supports both Scrum-based and continuous delivery strategies it is suitable for DW/BI teams new to agile as well as experienced teams looking to improve their approach. This workshop teaches you the techniques required to make agile DW/BI teams successful. An important aspect of this workshop is working through a DW/BI-specific case study.

     

    Audience

    • DW/BI Managers or practitioners: If Agile DW/BI is new to you and if you wish an effective launch of Agile DW/BI
