Agile Business Intelligence

Infoq published recently an article about how the use of agile methods and techniques can be adapted for Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence. It is mentioning an article that Scott Ambler wrote for Cutter IT Journal.

Beyond the adoption of an Agile approach Scott also has some recommendations:
- Apply Agile Data techniques
- Adopt SOA and Web 2.0 Strategies (Data Federation and EAI)
- Recognize the Limits of a "Single Version of the Truth"

I think the use of agile concepts and techniques adapted for DW/BI is an interesting approach to develop better projects.

P.S. - I wrote a post about this issue called The use of agile techniques in DW/BI projects.
