It might be easy for the business analyst to pass the challenges of business analytics, with all of the statistics, math, algorithms, programming in strange languages like R and Python off to the data analysts and data scientists but at the same time we may find that we are passing control of the business and of our careers to someone else.
Business analytics does not work, at least it won’t work successfully, without having some kind of business problem to solve. Despite the mythology of data mining and data analysts coming up with magic associations and insights that no one ever saw before, it doesn’t really happen that way. The data analysts and data scientists are brilliant at applying algorithms to massive amounts of data to produce results, but someone has to understand what the organization’s problems and issues are and form the questions that the data scientists and analysts are going to answer with data.
This webinar introduces you to the concepts of business analytics and data mining and how the business analyst plays an integral role in the overall success of business and data analytics in the organization.
