All,
I have around 2.5 years of experience in oracle pl/sql...
Now I have been offered to work in Data warehousing tool (COGNOS)...I am pretty confused whether to grasp the offer or not...
I am basically interested in database.. Don’t know whether the new job will distract or deviate my current profile...
Anyone pls advice me on this.... Your suggestions are highly appreciated.

Well, Cognos isn't a real datawarehousing tool. It's merely an OLAP tool that can be used on several databases. So if the database Cognos is used on is Oracle then I would go for this opportunity. Bussiness Intelligence is booming bussiness these days.

If you want to know more about the oracle database and datawarehousing then I'd stick with what you're doing now and look for a real datawarehousing Job with tools like OWB Laughing

Rob

Haha, no Naveen COGNOS has'nt got anything to do with TOAD. This is a whole different ballgame. If you don't know what Business Intelligence is, than I'd suggest to you to stick with what you're doing now.

Just take a look at www.cognos.com to see what kind of software we're talking about. There really is no point in explaining what Business Intelligence is. Please Google on the term a bit and I'm sure you will find out.

Regards,
Rob
