Life is Better When You’re BI

Last week eWeek.com published an article titled “BI Skills are in Demand” with this abstract [1]:

“The demand for skilled Business Intelligence developers is outweighing the supply and making it difficult for software companies in this market to find qualified people.”

Sounds about right to me. The article isn’t specific to the Microsoft BI platform, and it (in my opinion, incorrectly) identifies the relatively low price point and wonderful ease of use of Microsoft’s offerings as something that will level out the BI salary field, but it’s still an interesting read.

About ssimagine

My name is Matthew Roche, and I am a Senior Program Manager with the SQL Server product group at Microsoft. I work on Master Data Services and Data Quality Services, and have previously worked on SQL Server Integration Services. Although I work for Microsoft and will be posting on technical topics, I want to stress that this is a personal blog, and any opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. I built my career around SQL Server and Microsoft technologies for well over a decade before I joined Microsoft as an employee, and I plan on using this blog to share my personal experience and opinions. They may well be shaped by my experience on the SQL Server team, but they’re still mine, and not that of Microsoft, disclaimer, disclaimer, etc., etc..
