Couched in the principles set forth in the Agile Manifesto, adapted for Data Architecture, this presentation identifies how to consistently produce business-driven results.

It begins by identifying the elements required to set the stage for success, looks at how to quickly set the baseline for business information concepts, and identifies how to integrate the information enlightenment gained in this approach with traditional, agile and package deployment development efforts.
