[This was originally posted on an old blog: Blog Interrupted: It's been a while... ]
Well it's been almost a year and a half since my last post. You would have been right to assume that this blog was dead but, just like Lazarus, it's alive again. Resurrected and better than ever.
I've been out of the Business Intelligence / Data Warehouse arena working in Database Marketing. It's definitely given me an extra perspective on data warehouse and the value of data for it's own sake. The first lesson was that it's not polite to laugh at people when they call a million row table "big";-). The second lesson was that sub-queries in SQL Server do not work and will never return.
Anyway, I'm back in the industry working as a Data Warehouse Designer / Architect so I'll be using this blog as a place to crystallise my thoughts on how data warehousing should be done. I also love to research new products in this space so I'll be putting company and product summaries here as well with links to loads of useful resources.
