BI Project Manager

What makes a good BI Project Manager?

--Click Here for Link--

A blend of PM, Business Analyst, Information Analyst, Developer, Architect, Quality Assurance and whatever else hat you can think of.

The business knows what they want (sometimes).  The BI Developer knows the technology side.

The BI Project Manager unites the two:

Business + Technology.

The BI PM would not have to know every little detail regarding the technology side.  But they should have a good high level knowledge of the inner workings. He/she should be able to get into the code and read the SQL, modify reports when necessary, manage the web server, validate the data, speak the customer lingo, know the underlying database structure.

It seems to me this role is valuable to the organization. 

I wonder if there's a niche market for BI Project Managers?
