Prototype to Production
When starting out on their journey into the new world of AgileData ways of working, data teams will often start off with a Prototype > Production pattern.
We see this as a stepping stone to being able to build production Information Products from the get go.
But as with all things agile its about starting off with a pattern, getting feedback from the team and stakeholders and then iterating to make things better.
Have a listen or read of a podcast where Gerhard De Beer discusses the Production > Prototype pattern his teams experimented with.

Have a look at our file upload feature.
