BI Analyst in banking to retail or pharmaceutical

Question: Is it possible to work in banking as a business intelligence analyst and then after some years change to work in the retail industry or pharmaceutical industry?

This was one of the questions by a LinkedIn connection.  He wants to know if it's possible to switch domains (for example from banking to retail or pharma) while performing business intelligence analyst role.

My answer: In general, yes, it's possible. The skills you need are the same. Your experience will definitely support you. You will have to pick up the domain knowledge quickly. Domain knowledge is the most important aspect in this role from my point of view.
