Many people have the ability to write SQL code, create databases, create Integration Services packages, create Reporting Services reports. They key is not the ability to create, but knowing what to create, understanding how the pieces fit together, being able to predict and and plan for future needs, being able to see limitations in different approaches, etc. 

This is the strength of Innovative Data Solutions.

In a world where knowledge is money, why should this be made freely available? There is nothing here that cannot be found with a search of the internet, so it is already available for anyone to access. In reality, knowledge is not as valuable as the application of knowledge. 

The following story illustrates the point well:

A giant ship engine failed. The ship’s owners tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure but how to fix the engine.

Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was a young.He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom.Two of the ship’s owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know what to do.

After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed!

​A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand dollars.“What?!” the owners exclaimed. “He hardly did anything!” So they wrote the old man a note saying, “Please send us an itemized bill.”

The man sent a bill that read:

Tapping with a hammer…… …… ……… $         2.00

Knowing where to tap……… …… ……… $ 9,998.00

Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort makes all the difference! Keep studying hard. Don’t give up!
