Agile BI represents a new approach to prototyping and validating business intelligence solutions. With Pentaho Agile Business Intelligence, users are able to collapse a multi-step and lengthy BI project cycle into a single integrated process, collaborate and iterate easily, and quickly drive to full deployment. By enabling analysts and end-users to rapidly examine, manipulate, model and visualize business data, Agile BI accelerates the discovery of new information and helps organizations establish the value of BI projects before committing to long-term investments.
Using a combination of instructor-led presentations and hands-on exercises, this course presents Agile BI using the Pentaho unified data integration, data modeling and data visualization development environment.
