In this presentation, Jeremy will outline some ideas about how data architectures can be delivered in a fashion that meets the Agile vision. Agility is defined as responsiveness to business needs, while respecting the needs of all involved parties, which in the case of data architecture, this means developers, DBAs, infrastructure staff, project managers, data analysts and business users. Many people consider the relational database as an obstacle to agility. Jeremy will prove that this is not the case by outlining a number of design, deployment and tooling patterns that support agility in MS SQL Server database solutions.
