I think this is a vague question.

The answer to it really depends on what you do right now and what are your future goals.

My advice - be as generic as you can. Don't invest 100% in one technology. If you're interested in DW, keep an eye out for SAP, SAS, Informatica and other ERP/B.I/ETL tools, since the ultimate purpose of a DW is to enable some sort of analysis/prediction.

Join some consulting company like Deloitte or Accenture and over a period of time, you should try to gain exposure to a variety of technologies.

To get an idea of DW market in USA, you can search monster.com, dice.com etc.
All the best!

What exactly is data warehousing? it seems to cover alot of areas like business intelligence, integration, analysis etc. what would be the most relevant for programmers?

The whole ETL process would represent DW i guess. Look up the internet for DW tutorials. Here is a link to a good DW or DM tutorial. I found it to be concise and to the point. It might not help you design your own data mart any time soon but you can grasp the over all picture.

Good luck
