Data analysts, who are responsible for extracting & preparing data for analysis, play a crucial role in supporting BI functions such as risk profiling, analytics & business reporting. To date they have worked within the structured environment of data warehouses & programming languages such as Base SAS & SQL.
This presentation will focus on the move to semi-structured & unstructured data, massive storage devices & languages such as NoSQL & the challenges to data analysts they will bring.
