CoffeeCAST – #20 – A Year in Review

Coffeecup1stanni Welcome to the 20th Episode of the CoffeeCAST with Stephen Hayward of Project X.  So this CoffeeCAST happens to coincide with Project X’s 1st Anniversary.

So as you can imagine, I grabbed Graham, my co-Founder and we decided to sit down and share a view of our year in review.  We focused mainly on our Data practice and not some of our Advisory work as it was the area that we shared in common and we also only had so long.  Today we talk about:

  • Getting started over his picnic table
  • Working with our first client and now being to five
  • Evolution of our Thinking
    • Reference Architecture
    • Guiding Principles
    • Governance and Stewardship
    • Readiness
    • Rapid Results
  • General Observations
    • Year of Data
    • Value vs Price
    • Metadata Management
    • Look to faster return on Enterprise platforms
  • Working Data Store
  • Active Data Warehousing
  • Information as a Service

    Really frun to hear you and graham reminisce about your first year and how well Project X is developing.
    It will be really interesting to see if we are in the decade of data. Certainly access to good information as close to real time as possible is exciting. My initial reaction is that the bean counters will find it difficult to balance things on the fly. However we have done it with continuous inventory so why not continuous balancing. Now I am way out of my depth.
    Good fun hearing you guys chat and debate.
