Abstract – There is unanimous agreement among agile authors, experts, and practitioners that agile development works well for building small, stand-alone systems, including front-end BI applications, for one user or one department. However, there is considerable disagreement among these experts whether agile can work for large, complex systems like an enterprise data warehouse, which requires an enterprise perspective across many users and many departments for activities like data standardization, data integration, enterprise data modeling, business rules ratification, coordinated ETL data staging, common metadata, collectively architected databases, and so on. Today’s popular agile methodologies were not designed to address any of these additional EDW/BI-specific complexities and interdependencies. But the Extreme Scoping™ approach presented by Larissa Moss was specifically designed for enterprise data warehouse solutions because it merges agile principles with a robust EDW/BI methodology.
