I am a professional with five years of work experience in the semiconductor industry in the sales/marketing domain. I also have an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering and a recent MBA in marketing. I am interested in building a career in the DW/BI market space. Could you advise me on how to go about this?
I am glad to hear you are interested in the DW/BI space. The First step is to look within your organization and make your interest known. It is always easier to get into a new area with people who already know you and your work performance. If this is not possible, check out various BI/DW associations such as DAMA and look into additional education where you can network with others in or looking to get into the DW/BI field
