July Meeting: Delivering Big Data Analytic projects using Agile development

When: July, 13 2017  (Second Thursday) Networking: 5:30 - 6:00 pm Program: 6:00 - 7:30 pm

Management of Big Data Analytic projects can be ambiguous. Analytical questions flow rapidly from customers of this platform and providing insights to those questions often inspires additional questions. This curiosity of data is amazing and continually growing, only adding to the challenge of managing these projects. The complications involved are multifaceted: many Big Data platforms do not have a well-defined process for acquiring new data; resources are often finite, or in conflict with other simultaneous requests; and analytic questions vary widely on their ‘time to market’ needs and cost of delay.


This presentation will outline one approach used to manage Big Data Analytic projects through Agile principles, given the evolving processes of an emerging technology, insight turnaround timelines, ever changing priority, and shared resources.
