I make Great Things!

in Visualisation & Augmented Intelligence technologies

INTRODUCTION

Software development in is still a young profession, and we are still learning the techniques and building the tools to do it effectively. I've been involved in this activity for over two decades and in the last one I've been working with patterns and practices that make it easier to build useful Business Intelligence software. I mainly build solutions that have the goal to deliver on the value in added value added insights. I am experimenting with Advanced Analytics, Artificial and Augmented Intelligence to come to even more insights.

In 2015, I joined Deloitte Belgium, where my role is to apply the techniques and best practices that we've learned to deliver software for our clients, and pass these techniques on to our clients.

MOBILITY AND SUSTAINABILITY

If there's a theme that runs through my work and writing on this site, it's the interplay between the shift towards agile thinking and the technical patterns and practices that make agile software development practical. While specifics of technology change rapidly in our profession, fundamental practices and patterns are more stable. So writing about these allows me to have articles on this site that are several years old but still as relevant as when they were written.

As software becomes more critical to modern business, software needs to be able to react quickly to changes, allowing new features to be be conceived, developed and put into production rapidly. The techniques of agile software development began in the 1990s and became steadily more popular in the last decade. They focus on a flexible approach to planning, which allows software products to change direction as the users' needs change and as product managers learn more about how to make their users effective. While widely accepted now, agile approaches are not easy, requiring significant skills for a team, but more importantly a culture of open collaboration both within the team and with a team's partners.
