I had a very interesting conversation recently with a good friend of mine. She’s at the top of her game as a first class enterprise DBA in a major medical institution. She was interested in my career advice because she’d recently received an unsolicited invitation for a higher paying job in the business intelligence (BI) field. While I won’t talk much more about the specifics of that conversation, it’s not a unique conversation. In fact, I gave an interview to SearchSQLServer.com a while back about how DBA career paths are more and more leading into an even better paying career in business intelligence.
