Thanks for joining our data conversation! This blog is an opportunity to share the real life challenges, opportunities and approaches to improving the quality and value of data in your organization. We will write about everything data related from translating "data" speak into "business" speak, to governance models, to the real differences among the myriad software tools available. But there's one catch: we all have to agree to toss out the fluff. That's right, no 30,000 foot, theoretical strategies that leave you wondering how to execute and actually improve performance. Visit regularly to learn from peers and partners on how they are managing and improving data, and we hope you'll also share your views and experiences.

Welcome to the first post on the Agile Data blog! We have been having rigorous, interesting and curious conversations about data with clients and industry for some time now. So we thought it is about time to formally launch this blog!

This blog is an opportunity to share the real life challenges, opportunities and approaches to improving the quality and value of data in your organization. We will write about everything data related from translating "data" speak into "business" speak, to governance models, to the real differences among the myriad software tools available. But there's one catch: we all have to agree to toss out the fluff.

That's right, no 30,000 foot, theoretical strategies that leave you wondering how to execute and actually improve performance. We are using the term "Agile" in two ways. One way is in the sense of the Agile software development: a group of software development methodologies based on iterative and incremental development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between cross-functional teams (Wikipedia). We will talk about how taking an Agile approach to data results in greater success and value to the organization, while reducing risk. The other way is in the sense of the adjective: quick and well-coordinated in movement; active or lively; marked by an ability to think quickly (dictionary.com).

We hope to provide a forum for active and lively discussion, responding quickly to industry trends and participant comments, while facilitating and coordinating perspectives from different viewpoints.

Please visit regularly to learn from peers and partners on how they are managing and improving data, and we hope you'll also share your views and experiences. We also look forward to your comments and contributions.

Sincerely, Kelle O'Neal
