For a long time, business intelligence professionals lived and breathed Excel, but the toolset has expanded significantly in the past decade. From PowerBI to Tableau, powerful data analysis tools allow BI professionals to quickly model and visualize data and create dashboards for users. Importantly, they can do it without code.
Business intelligence software has ushered in the self-service model. Every organization needs a single source of truth. Analysts have traditionally acted in this role, acting as gatekeepers for data collection, analysis, and reporting. With well-structured data fed into a business intelligence software and the right training, analysts can empower users without losing control of the data or even analysis.
BI training typically covers a mix of database and data visualization skills as well as user training for these powerful data analysis tools.
