the data community hasn't come up to speed on agile software
development and as a result are falling further and further
behind. Few people in that community are talking about agile, and
those that do often dismiss it. There is a clear need for tools
targeted specifically at that group. Although to agilists the
concept of "IDE X for data professionals" is not exactly ideal, it's
the only way that we're going to get data professionals to realize
that they need to improve the way that they work.
