We at adesso have been using agile methods in software engineering for a long time. And we are now, after a slight delay, incorporating these methods into BI projects. Traditional procedures that have been used in previous BI projects until now are not capable of providing companies with analytical knowledge quickly and efficiently in today’s digital climate. Flexibility and agility are paramount, and the required agility needs to be supplemented by processes, applications and IT systems. To this end, companies could implement data modelling processes such as data vault modelling, use hot data (in-memory database) or an Extract Load Transform (ELT) tool while taking an agile development approach and deploying dynamically scalable systems.
In our view, agility in the context of BI projects means providing the knowledge that is needed for making decisions in a quick and efficient manner. Agility, combined with automation and self-learning analysis methods, will have a direct impact on the organisation, technology and processes of a company. This set of approaches is then an analysis service that is incorporated into a ‘digital product’. Business analytics is therefore not always recognisable as such at first glance, but it is an integral part of everyday digital applications.
We offer both traditional and modern BI procedures and use them, depending on your requirements, to help your company make decisions as efficiently and sustainably as possible.
