2105 Decatur Street, Denver, CO
We are delighted to announce our 2017 Kickoff Speaker: Dr. Ken Collier, author of Agile Analytics: A Value-Driven Approach to Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing, and Director Agile Data Science & Engineering, Thoughtworks.
We are in the midst of an exciting time. There is an explosion of very interesting data, and emergence of powerful new technologies for harnessing data, and devices that enable humans to receive tremendous benefits from it. What is required are innovative processes that enable the creation and delivery of value from all of that data.
More often than not, it is the predictive (what will happen?) and prescriptive (how to make it happen!) analytics that produces this value, not the raw data itself. Agile software teams are continuously involved in projects that involve rich, complex, and messy data. Often this data represents innovative analytics opportunities. Being analytics-aware gives these teams the opportunity to collaborate with stakeholders to innovate by creating additional value from the data.
This session is aimed at making Agile software teams more analytics-aware so that they will recognize these innovation opportunities. The trouble with conventional analytics (like conventional software development) is that it involves long, phased, sequential steps that take too long and fail to deliver actionable results. This talk will examine the convergence of the following elements of an exciting emerging field called Agile Analytics:
