How to get started with Agile BI

  • November 6, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come anytime between 6 and 6:30. We'll be talking about how to get started with Agile BI with plenty of time for questions and discussion. Pizza will be provided. 

Agile can work for BI in the same way that Agile is working for software development and other technical processes: because it focuses on delivering BI functionality frequently as prioritized by business value. This discussion will help you understand how to start applying Agile processes to your BI projects.

    Sorry to see that several people had trouble getting up to the meetup location. Liz was in the lobby until 6:30 and then we posted her phone number so hopefully everyone that arrived eventually got in. Our next meeting will be downstairs so no elevator access issues to contend with! Thanks so much to everyone who made it out and contributed to a great discussion! I'll be posting the slides soon and we should have information on the next meetup posted next week.

    Hi everyone, This is the Meetup group I had mentioned:
    What to expect:
    ~ Presentations by BIRT Experts on best practices for BIRT design, deployment and application development
    ~ Discussions exploring techniques for using BIRT with the latest new technologies such as analytics and big data
    ~ Examples of real-life BIRT usage in industry and government
    For those folks who are unfamiliar with BIRT, it is the only top-level BI project as part of the Open Source Eclipse platform.
    For reference:
    ~ Open Source BIRT:
    ~ Commercial BIRT:
    ~ Premier BIRT-related portal with an active community of thousands of developers worldwide:
    If there are any questions about the DC Metro BIRT Meetup group, or BIRT in general, please feel free to contact me directly.

    Hi. I'm waiting downstairs. There's no security guard to let me up.

    Running a bit late tonight -- hopefully I'll be able to enter the building as I don't see any phone number posted here.

    Just arrived at the building. Security says that someone needs to come get us so we can go upstairs.

    First Weds. of the month are tough - generally working late in DC. Other Wednesdays more possible, although just about any other day would be easier, in case that's a possibility

      Thanks for your input! Our next meeting will be on the second Wednesday so hopefully that will work better for you.

    1st Weds don't work for me either. I belong to Mont Co PMI, and they meet then.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
