Abstract: Agile methods like Scrum, Kanban or scaled agile frameworks play a crucial role in software development since decades. In data science or data analytics in general, these methods are utilized as well; however, specific challenges occur compared to classical software development. Data availability, data quality, etc. must be considered and AI-driven model development is typically associated with high risk. In this talk we will discuss several aspects of agile software development in the context of data-driven products. When it comes to data analytics & data science, the main task is extracting useful information out of raw data, using machine learning models and implementing operative products. We will also cover some additional challenges from the healthcare industry, e.g., General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
