Deployment of Analytic Data Solutions Using Agile and DevOps Best Practices
Traditional waterfall methods of solutions delivery take too long and do not yield the quality of results demanded by the business. In this workshop we leverage best practices from agile software development to propose a framework for delivery of analytic data solutions. The proposed framework integrates ideas from the Lean Software Development (LSD), DevOps, and Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) approaches with adjustments to make use of a data-driven design method for delivery. We will discuss why this approach is better than waterfall and point out potential pitfalls when transitioning to an agile development and delivery model.
Learn why agile approaches outperform waterfall methodologies for delivery of analytic solutions
Learn how to extend agile development methodology with DevOps delivery
Learn how enterprise culture must change when adopting agile development and delivery for analytic solutions.

Stephen Brobst, CTO Teradata, has produced a diverse range of seminars that he can present to your staff at your premises. We may also occasionally run these as public seminars. Stephen frequently delivers keynotes at large conferences and is equally comfortable with business and/or technical audiences in smaller industry, organisational or user group meetings. Multiple seminars can be scheduled for one day. Stephen is experienced in both computer science via his MIT PhD work, and is also well versed in business management through his MBA work in a joint program between the Harvard Business School and the MIT Sloan School of Management.
