Discover how to become a Data Analyst
Introduction, Use Cases and Industry Requirements
After the first module, you will know the terms, principles, norms, standards & industry requirements of data literacy. You’ll understand the importance of data-driven approaches and business data analysis between innovation and business and how „data handling“ impacts entire business ecosystems and enterprise structures.
Modules 2 and 3
Ad Hoc Data Analytics
Modules 2 and 3 will cover ad hoc data analysis. Ad hoc analysis in Business Intelligence differs dramatically from managed reports from the early days of Business Analytics, which used templates provided by IT and business departments.
Modules 4 and 5
After these modules, you’ll know how data analytics works. This means analysing raw data with the aid of data analytics software and making recommendations based on that analysis. With the use of data, you’ll be able to verify or falsify hypotheses and models.
Modules 6 and 7
In these modules, we will learn how business intelligence (BI) is, in a lot of ways, a key aspect of most businesses in today’s world. It is a technology-driven process for analysing data and presenting actionable information. This process helps executives, managers, and other end users to make informed business decisions.
As part of this module, you will learn how Data Environments and Data Sets work from start to finish. After data is entered into the system, it can usually be imported into a database. As a result, the data set can be analysed across time and across sites. This module aims to demonstrate and teach how to create indicators that can help drive business more quickly. Hence, the database is used as a central repository, often including a “Data Warehouse (DWH)” or “Data Lake” within an enterprise.
Data Governance & Best Practices
The final module focuses on managing the availability, usability, integrity and security of data used within an organisation for data analysis. It provides business considerations for combining and recapping the content from previous modules. This module illustrates how business data analysts can drive and lead data-driven digitisation and innovation in SMEs and large enterprises through a holistic knowledge base.
