Agile Project Management In Business Intelligence.
Presenter: Steve Benteau of MNP
Agile methodologies are nothing new in the world of software development. However, in business intelligence (BI) and analytics solution development traditional waterfall methods have continued to be used in many new projects. Agile BI addresses a growing need to enable greater flexibility and by shortening of time it takes to deliver value with BI projects. During this talk we will discuss the background of agile methods and their applicability for business intelligence. Two Agile BI case studies will be discussed with highlights of key learning.
Topic: What CFO's need to be Aware of in Canada's Anti-Spam Law
Once it is proclaimed into force, Canada’s anti-spam law (CASL) will place increased compliance burdens on businesses, with application to many daily activities such as sending email and text messages to customers, and making computer programs and mobile applications available for download. Many of these burdens may become the responsibility of the CFO so May’s peer group meeting will review how the CASL will affect your business and what you need to do to prepare for it?
Leading our discussion on this new law will be Diane Karnay, a lawyer with Wilson Vukelich LLP. Diane has a wide background in commercial law and significant experience in mergers and acquisitions, information technology, e-commerce, privacy, information technology and business process outsourcing, franchising, trade-mark and copyright matters. She has represented a leading national company in its procurement and management of software, hardware and technology services, including complex systems integration design, build and implementation projects, strategic alliance arrangements, onshore and offshore outsourcing transactions, online services, and both straight-forward and complex licensing projects. Diane is a member of the Toronto Computer Lawyers Group, the Canadian IT Law Association, the York Technology Association, and the Ontario Bar Association. She is also a registered trade-mark agent with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office.
