How can code life cycle automation satisfy the growing demands in modern enterprise business intelligence?

The world of enterprise business intelligence is growing rapidly with more and more companies striving to become data-driven. Add to this the introduction of new directions in technology such as big data, cloud based BI platforms, and self-service solutions, and it is clear that it is even more important than ever to keep your BI development under control.

Whilst an agile approach to BI development is useful for delivering value in general, the use of advanced automation techniques can also save significant resources, prevent production errors, and shorten time to market.

The event took place on May 19th. 2016 in Eight Moorgate Club in London. But do not worry, slides are available on Slideshare:
