Data warehouse contractor in London. Mostly I work with SQL Server on Insurance clients. I've proposed a business intelligence site on Area 51, which has now been merged into dba.stackexchange.com.

comment Stored Procedures a bad practice at one of worlds largest IT software consulting firms?
Bear in mind that most large I.T. consulting firms have a motive to maximise billable hours while keeping their arse covered. The old-timers with any clout in these firms also tend to be players and bureaucrats rather than techies. I'd take things like that from a consultancy firm with a grain of salt - I've gotten consultancy firms out of the shit on more than one occasion by fixing up their 'best' practice.
