Level:  Intermediate

With changes in software development methodologies, the role of the data modeler has changed significantly, requiring a more flexible approach. In order to participate fully, modelers must not only adapt to an Agile work style, but must also be able to communicate the business value of model driven development. Ron Huizenga will show the contrast in metrics and cost when utilizing skilled data modelers versus a development-only approach, with topics including:
  • Modeler participation in multiple Agile teams
  • Defect categories and impact
  • Measurement and analysis techniques
  • Remediation strategy
  • Breakthrough quality improvements

This "must see" session is not only for data modelers and architects, but also the decision makers for these initiatives, with information that is vital to modelers, IT executives and business sponsors. So bring your boss to the session!
