Has anybody switched from web dev to BI developer? How was the transition?

I’m especially interested if those who switched, did feel like there is more analytical thinking involved. I would assume so, because the goal is to create dashboards for business people who can make decisions based on them, so BI devs need to have that in mind. Both of these jobs focus heavily on creating and building (dashboards/web apps) but I would think that the BI dev is somewhat closer to that analyst archetype than web deb, who is a builder archetype.

Also, coming from big app codebase, I know the never ending stream of new bugs and issues which has to be constantly taken care of, which for some can be quite frustrating. Is there something similarly annoying in BI development? Or is it is more “clean”? I would imagine tasks that start with “blank page”, where we have to gather, clean and maniulate the data (I assume with SQL or maybe python), and then presenting them by creating charts. Then we hand the report to business, maybe even present it ourselves and that’s it – onto the next report or “project” if you will. These small, well definable “projects” seems quite appealing compared to sometimes chaotic process of web development, especially in big codebases. Is that how BI works?
