Agile Training

In the late 1990’s several software development methodologies began to get increasing public attention. Each had a different combination of old ideas, new ideas, and transmuted old ideas. But they all emphasized close collaboration between the programmer team and business experts; face-to-face communication (as more efficient than written documentation); frequent delivery of new deployable business value; tight, self-organizing teams; and ways to craft the code and the team such that the inevitable requirements churn was not a crisis.


Business Analysis Training

Hands-On Business Analysis training from Agile Raven can help you build the “Skills Bridge” which allows organizations to cross the chasm between IT and Business. Fully endorsed by the IIBA & PMI, our curriculum of hands-on business analysis training courses will help prepare professionals of all levels for business analyst suceess and certification. From converging data/process modeling, project scope definition, and business requirements gathering, development, and testing, Agile Raven has the most comprehensive business analysis training curriculum. We focus on real-world skills development, providing tools and techniques you will use immediately.


Data Training

The skills to manage and analyze your organization’s information are fundamental to success. Whether it’s Excel to manage everyday data needs, or Hadoop and scalable clusters for big data, we offer a complete curriculum of hands-on, skills-driven data training. In just a few days, you can rapidly upgrade your data capability into a new source of competitive advantage.

These days, anything stored digitally qualifies as accessible data. With the right approach, it can translate into significant business value. However, unconventional new definitions of data combined with sheer quantity overwhelm conventional systems. By definition, managing and analyzing “big data” is beyond the capacity of legacy systems, but with the advent of Apache Hadoop, opensource technology now exists to efficiently store and analyze almost limitless data. At the same time, traditional tools like Excel and conventional modeling are more valuable than ever.

The courses below represent the most critical knowledge areas for tapping the potential of both “big” data and “little” data. Browse the topics below, or call us for guidance from a live training advisor: (408) 792-7073.
