BEYOND THE LOOKING GLASS, FROM WATERFALL TO AGILE:
“What, am I looking at?” That’s what I said to myself. Then I thought, “Sanjay must have sent me the wrong file.” Turns out, nope. I had asked him for an audit log report. My request was neither unusual nor surprising. I was, after all, the new privacy officer for Sanjay’s business unit. I received an email from him sans subject line with one large excel file attached; also not surprising, he was the lead software developer. I opened the file and began to scroll. Scroll as I might, I had not found the end of the document after 90 seconds. I tried scrolling both horizontally and vertically, as if doing so would help me make sense of the multitude of alpha numeric columns and rows that created a data maze on my computer screen. The scrolling did not help.
