Let's Get Started

Hi Everyone. Welcome to my first post on this newly launched blog of mine. I'll be updating this blog regularly with my real-life day-to-day experience working in the vast and exciting world of data warehousing and business intelligence (DWBI).

As an IT professional, I have worn many different hats over the years – salesman, manager, architect, developer, analyst, support and user. Though DWBI hasn't been the only thing I’ve done, it is certainly one of the most challenging and exciting expertise IMHO.

By no means will I try to come across as all-knowing DWBI guru. Because I am not. (And I have not met one yet.) Nonetheless I am definitely not new to the field. Here I am simply hoping to share some of my experience – good ones and bad ones. I might rant a little bit too.

Why the blog?
I literally woke up one day about a month ago and said, “I should start a journal like this. It would be fun. I think this would be a great medium to share and learn.”

I still remember hating writing as a kid. The only time I’ve actually written a journal was when I was backpacking in Europe right after I graduated from college. The experience was of such great immensity that I had trouble putting it on paper.
