July Chapter Meeting - Business Analyst or Data Analyst: Who is digging for data?
Overview and Learning Objectives
By 2023, the big data analytics market is expected to reach $103 billion. The big data market is projected to grow by 20%. It was predicted that in one second, each person would have generated 1.7 megabytes of data by 2020. Data is predicted to continue to grow exponentially now and into the future. We have the data, but we have limited talent to analyze this data.
In this session, learn more about this talent crunch and about the similarities and differences between business analysis and data analysis. What data skills should BAs acquire or possess? What BA type skills should data analysts develop? How do these roles intersect?
11:30 - 12:30 Presentation
With over 20 years of computer science and training experience, Kim Pigeon, Business Analyst and Data Analyst Program Instructor at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, was instrumental in designing the first Business Analyst Associate Degree Program in Wisconsin in 2015. Working in conjunction with the Business Analyst and Software Developer Programs, she is currently designing the Data Analytics Associate Degree Program for Fall 21. She describes this new venture as the data sandwich cookie. The outer shells are the BA and DA programs with software development skills sandwiched in between.
