The rate of change in the tools available to a Business Analyst has never been faster than it is in 2016. The market is changing so quickly that many Business Analysts (BAs) are not even aware of the great new tools that are available to help them succeed in their jobs and careers. Regular readers of my blog will already know what is hot, but let me cover off a bit of background to what is happening for the benefit of others before I answer the question about what training a BA should be doing (hyperlink to the bottom of the page if you can’t wait that long).
I am going to cover:
- what is hot in the Analytics Market right now and why you shoultied care,
- what Gartner says about the players in the Analytics Market,
- and then finally what skills and training Analysts should be focussing on.
