Although you wouldn’t think it, data modeling can be one of the most challenging tasks that an Agile DBA can be involved with on an agile software development project. Your approach to data modeling will often be at the center of any controversy between the agile software developers and the traditional data professionals within your organization. Agile software developers will lean towards an evolutionary approach where data modeling is just one of many activities whereas traditional data professionals will often lean towards a big design up front (BDUF) approach where data models are the primary artifacts, if not THE artifacts. This problem results from a combination of the cultural impedance mismatch , a misguided need to enforce the "one truth" , and “normal" political maneuvering within your organization. As a result Agile DBAs often find that navigating the political waters is an important part of their data modeling efforts.
