DevOps and continuous integration provide huge benefits to data warehouse development allowing your development team to deliver more, faster with repeatable & reliable results. However, most BI professionals have little exposure to the tools and techniques involved. Written and maintained by Dr. John Tunnicliffe, a well-respected designer and architect of business intelligence solutions, this site is designed to give you practical advice on how to apply DevOps techniques to your data warehouse project. Well versed in the Microsoft technology stack, Agile methodologies and DevOps techniques, John designs systems where much of the “plumbing” is auto-generated and the entire deployment automated.
John has been working with SQL Server since 2001 and has extensive experience of implementing a wide variety of BI solutions across a wide range of industries including insurance (ERS, Hiscox, Catlin), investment banking (Rabobank, BNP Paribas, Barclays Capital, Commerzbank, Bank of America), retail (Argos, Hotels.com, Virgin Travel), healthcare (IMS Health) and professional services (Hitachi Consulting, Capco).
As a regular speaker at the SQLBits conference and PASS SQL Saturday events, John has covered topics such as building an infrastructure to support real-time OLAP and continuous integration and the data warehouse.
