Business intelligence and analytics has undergone a revolutionary shift over the past few years, a transition that is still working its way through enterprises and their processes. Nowhere is this more evident than in the rapidly changing roles and expectations of information workers—those managing the data, as well as those consuming it.
Traditional data management tasks are still critical, and aren’t going away anytime soon. However, the analytics revolution demands higher-level skills that involve working more closely with the business. As a result, new opportunities are developing for data professionals. While today’s data professionals spend most of their time managing and securing databases, a large segment expect to be concentrating on business intelligence and data modeling in the near future.
