Companies are collecting more data than they ever have before. It takes someone with an eye for details and patters to decipher all that data. BI Analysts do the deep diving into the data and find compelling information that leads data driven decisions.
Analyzing data isn’t a “one and done” kind of activity. With technology the data is basically a “moving target” for most companies. Understanding the data, interpreting what its telling you (or not telling you) is a constant challenge.
BI Analysts get the added bonus of presenting information that gets the “Ah-Ha!” kind of moment on a regular basis.
