About me

Welcome to my blog.

I always use to think one day or the other that I should start a blog and never found time until now. The main reason to start this blog was I was finding some spare time during the winter season staying with my family and two kids mostly indoors.

Just to bring more about me, I am working in IT industry since 1996.  In the past, I have worked on different platforms and databases, Currently exploring my skills and ideas in Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing technologies.  Worked on different technologies for different clients and always came out with successful colors. I will be providing some tips and techniques in Business Intelligence products, how we use databases in our daily tasks to provide information to the end-users, this will assist the readers and me to remember the things for future reference.  Mostly, I’ll share my experience that I gained while working on different Data Warehousing and BI Technologies.

I hope it will help some readers or they may gain some knowledge from my posts and enjoy their stay here.

Thanks for stopping by !!
