Grant for Daisy Associate Professor Torben Bach Pedersen

Associate Professor Torben Bach Pedersen from Daisy has been granted 1.1 million DKK from the Danish Research Council for Technology and Innovation for the project “AOBI: Agile and Open Business Intelligence.” The project will explore the adaption of agile development methods, well-known in traditional software development, to fit the special characteristics of business intelligence (BI) projects. It will also explore the use of open source software for BI. The combination of these two can serve to significantly lower the cost of entry for a new BI solution, meaning that it will become feasible even for small enterprises to use BI. The project will also involve Daisy member Christian Thomsen, who will be hired as a post-doc on the project.
