Data Warehousing Isn't Dead

Data Warehousing is dead!

That's a false statement.

Just like saying the Mainframe is dead.

Which it isn't.

DW will be around for a long, long time.

As will traditional reporting.

Along with newcomers of Self Service, Visualization, Embedded, Mobile and yes, Big Data.

They will all be part of the Data ecosystem and a Data person will need to become experts in a variety of skills sets, if not all.

Yet that's a daunting task, baseball player's don't have to become hall of famer at every position, perhaps one if they're lucky.

You can make an entire career on just one skill set, however for marketability, it'd be wise to learn as many as possible.

So what are you doing reading this blog, shouldn't you be studying some new technology to keep current?  Just kidding!

Thanks for your continued support!
