Is the BI analyst going to eat the Accountant?

Is learning about RDBMs and SQL more important than learning about accountancy and accounting/bookkeeping software packages?

No. Why should they?

/biz/ is always fussing about how automation is going to kill office jobs, well guess what, accounting is ALREADY automated and there are still accountants.

Well, what about the second point? BI tools seem more powerful than accountancy tools to me. Wouldn't this make people who focus on accounting less valuable than people who focus on effecting using BI tools?

I'll admit that I'm fairly ignorant. If I knew it all, there would be no point in starting this thread.

>>1777234
This is stupid.
>will BUZZWORD replace ORIGINAL WORD
Yeah, accountants will be using the new tools.

BI analysts don't even know GAAP. Accounting problems are typically interpretations of GAAP, UCC, the Internal Code of Revenue, and financial regulations, something which cannot be automated in the foreseeable future as it is not something that can be reduced to an entry in a database.

Now can the IT fags and teenage wannabes fuck off and stop asking this question already?

BI Tools are tools. The domain knowledge for accountancy is what the business is paying you for. SQL is piss easy to pick up, I bet accountancy is not.

Accounting is quite boring tho.

Who cares if it's boring? You can't business without accounting.
