“Agile in Data Science – setting up an agile tribe in RBI”
Applying Scrum and Kanban to deliver innovations using big data analytics and data science? Yes, it’s possible!
Vanja will talk about setting up an agile cross-functional Advanced Analytics Tribe, which uses data science to deliver value for RBI clients and shareholders.
Vanja will take us on a journey from the last 12 months to show us how agile frameworks have been applied and the way of working to quickly deliver advanced analytics use cases and prototypes for the RBI Group and customers. You will hear from first hand about the successes, but also the challenges and the lessons learned along the way.
Participants will get an overview of using several agile frameworks and tools in an area which is not classical IT software development. They will get detailed insights on setting up an agile team from scratch in the data science area.
