Avoiding BI Catastrophe with Agile BI

Speaker: Paul Felix LeapFrog BI

Summary: The most common BI topics are about all of the exciting things people are doing with BI: Big Data! Predictive Analytics! Real Time Analytics! The second most common topic? The number of BI projects that are failures or disappointments. Clearly Business Intelligence is not always living up to its potential. Updated with insights from the August TDWI “Agile BI” conference in San Diego, Alan and Paul will present how to avoid catastrophe—and achieve BI’s potential—with an Agile approach.

About Paul: Paul has been focused on data driven decision improvement throughout his career. He has provided organizations across numerous verticals with the assets needed to turn raw information into knowledge capable of driving business success. Years of building data warehouses and ETL processes via traditional methods caused Paul to reassess the most costly and complex portion of a BI project, ETL, resulting in what is known today as the LeapFrogBI platform. When he is not knee deep in data, Paul loves to spend time with his wife, Amy, and their two boys Charles and Henry.
