The promise of Agile is faster delivery of value. However, with Agile, process and procedure seem to go out the window and quality sometimes suffers. Also, the team does not always see a way to deliver value in one week sprints.

This talk addresses how to move fast and maintain high quality. We will focus on:

  • The “Seven Shocking Steps” on how to set up the technical BI environment and
  • How you can organize your groups for maximum productivity

Gil Benghiat is one of three founders of DataKitchen, a company on a mission to enable analytic teams to deliver value quickly and with high quality. Gil’s career has always been data oriented, starting with collecting and displaying network data at AT&T Bell Laboratories (now Alcatel-Lucent), managing data at Sybase (purchased by SAP), collecting and cleaning clinical trial data at PhaseForward (IPO then purchased by Oracle), integrating pharmaceutical sales data at LeapFrogRx (purchased by Model N), and liberating data at Solid Oak Consulting.

Gil has a Master of Science in Computer Science from Stanford University and a Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics/Biology from Brown University. He completed hiking all 48 of New Hampshire’s 4,000 peaks and is now working on the New England's 67.
