Use of Agile methodologies for datawarehouse project implementation has been recommended in last few years considering challenges with using waterfall methodologies. This paper examines factors that decide suitability of agile methodology for datawarehouse projects. It proposes a model for assessing projects on various factors to decide if agile methodology is suitable for a datawarehouse project. This research contributes to IS success theory in the field of datawarehousing. Practical evaluation and application of model to projects can lead to avoiding high cost failures of datawarehouse projects.
