News and events

Join us for the next DataHub sprint review

For DataHub related news, events and recommended reads, please visit the RDM@UM website.

The purpose of a sprint review is to have a conversation with our stakeholders about how to improve our products. A sprint review takes place at the end of a sprint and is designed to gather actionable feedback on what the DataHub team has completed. During a sprint review we will put you in the driver's seat concerning (changes to) the products we have made. By collaborating and getting your direct feedback we are able to create more value for you and your colleagues. Your input will be highly appreciated. 

For more information about the sprints, please visit the DataHub Development pages.
