Beware of Scrum Fanatics On DW/BI Projects

You may be wondering what in the world are “Scrum Fanatics?” And why should you beware of them? And what is Scrum anyway? Scrum is an agile software development method. What’s so bad about that? Nothing, as long as you use it for software development projects and not for business integration projects. Isn’t a data warehouse a software development project? No, it isn’t. It’s a business integration project. Scrum, or any other feature-driven software development method, is not the right methodology for data-driven business integration projects.
