Certification options 

Hello!  A month ago I completed a 5-month course of study in data analysis/business intelligence.  My DA/BI knowledge is limited to my school and lab work.  Haven't held any paid positions yet but looking.  Also looking into certification.

I haven't given much thought to a career path.  I like writing queries, database planning and creation and design, and planning scheduled tasks for things like backup and maintenance.  So in my ideal job I would do those a lot.  I would not pursue management or leadership roles. 

My guidance counselor recommended I pursue certification in Access, which she said would be foundational, but I'm interested in anything an analysis professional might say on the subject (certifying).  Specifically, is MCP (she also mentioned this) and/or MOS a realistic goal for a newb?  Also, is anyone certified in Access?  I think that would be an MOS.  

Again, any stray thoughts or insights are welcome, I'm a sponge now and soaking up everything.

Thank you so much.

Hi Harriet,

 

Firstly forget MS Access certification. Complete waste of time.

 

I recommend you look at Data Analysis/Scientist. Being able to make sense of the reams of data and the IoT is only going to get more in demand. Tools such as R, SPSS and other proprietary ones are in wide use.

 

You'll need to go back to school and do a degree unless you can talk your way into it where you work now.

Good luck

Let me start by saying that a business rule is far more granular than a business decision, and that the two should never be confused. Today, it is an unfortunate fact that some vendors would have potential clients believe that there is synergy between business rules and business decisions. Perhaps this is because in an effort to differentiate one b...

Traceability is one of the lesser understood aspects of business analysis. It is indeed quite hard to maintain good traceability unless automated. This is why BABoK® warns us being theoretical about traceability. In this article, I would like to explain traceability concepts with help of an example. BABoK® definition of traceability: ...

Most IT jobs have a clear, specific job description and career path. However, the business analyst career path tends to vary, as do the descriptions from job to job. The business analyst career path is best. Because, “There are career tracks that zigzag back and forth between IT and business. Someone might start as a business analyst, and the...
