What are the pros and cons in the selection of Business Intelligence as a new profession?

Good day!
I would like to know the opinion of a person who is a developer in Business Intelligence.
I'm an economist, accountant and auditor ( CPA - Certified Public Accountant), but lately I want to retrain and start working in IT, so the look falls on the BI, so as to become a programmer time is lost and hard to find practice due to the tight labour market and the sphere BI is close to me because the business world I know inside (financial reporting, planning, etc.).
I would be glad if someone share his opinion about this area : cons, pros, prospects, opportunity to promote own business in this field, creative development, forecasts how BI will evolve in the future and so on.
Thanks in advance for your help!

PS recently learned SQL and started now to teach yourself C#.

The main disadvantage for You: experience. On a major project without experience will not take you.

I understand that this is the main obstacle, but to start with something will still be needed. And this applies to any field of it. Before you throw in the pool, I would like to find out whether or not. And therefore asked the question.
