There's sometimes a tension between traditional data architects/ modellers, and agilists.Perhaps it's not too hard to understand. The "data" types feel they?ve been burned by fast delivery of applications that won't integrate with other systems, and the agile developers don't want to sit around waiting for head office architects to describe a perfect start-up model.One approach to ending this civil (uncivil?) war is to use published data model/class model patterns.

Title: Executive Briefing on Agile Business Intelligence and Data WarehousingOverview: While Agile approaches for the development of transaction- and data capture-applications have been around since before the publication of the Agile Manifesto 10 years ago, employing Agile methods such as Scrum and XP to build large, data-driven systems such as data warehouses is new.
