Question for my fellow data professionals:
I'm feeling more and more that heavy documentation for *reports* is in indication that there hasn't been enough documentation of *data*. I figure if your metadata is solid (business glossary, data dictionary, data model) then you can skimp on or skip the report docs and requirements. Heck, I figure you should be able to show up in the client's office and just build the report *with* them with no requirements, as long as the business questions match the grain of the dimensional model.
Am I wrong?
