Getting your job done without spending the better portion of nights and weekends accomplishing it is fun! Under the old paradigm of getting to the answer, that type of work-life was not uncommon.

Wondering id BI really means "Blind Ignorance" as the focus still seems to be on reporting with dubious data quality. Analytics re defines the standards for data and structures, something the IT world needs to understand. Maybe BI is really dead and Decision intelligence is the new paradigm, just like analyst is being replaced by data scientist. Thoughts anyone?
