In my opinion DWH is one of the most creative careers in IT. It requires a sound business knowledge of the domain along with analytical skills to identify patterns.

There is a lot of demand for DWH specialists in Banking, Retailing and Customer relationships.

In customer relationships you woul duse DWH to draw inferences from buying patterns while in banking you'll use the transactions to identify fraud. Each of these require additional qualifications. For banking an additional course like CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor) would boost your career in fraud detection.

You'll also need to be familiar with DWH tools like Informatica and Cognos / Business Object
