Hello, DA to BA 
Modified By Chris Adams  on 1/24/2022 12:18:40 PM)

Hi Everyone,

I'm a new BA. My background has always been more in the areas of GIS and Data Analysis. Got a bit bored of the whole GIS stuff and recently started getting more into data analytics - power bi, alteryx, tableau etc. More recently it occurred to me that a BA role would potentially compliment my data analytics background.

I applied for a BA job recently and was turned down for the role initially. I think I did enough to impress them because they've now offered me the BA role with training. This is the course that they’ve mentioned: Business analyst / Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education. -

Don’t really know much about this course or how good it is? Was a bit sceptical initially as this looks like an apprenticeship course. At the end of the day I get the job and the paid for training is a bonus I guess. I’m keen on upskilling myself quickly in the BA area with qualifications as well as experience.

Thought I would join this forum to gain knowledge from seasoned professionals and hopefully contribute on here once I’m up and running.

I know this is just an introduction post but if anyone has any advice, suggestions for courses or anything else I can get into straight away, I’d really appreciate the advice. I did Prince2 years ago and I’ve seen agile, sigma six, scrum master words banded around on a lot on the BA job roles.

I really don’t know much about them but I figure I could potentially get stuck into one of those things straight away.

Looking forward to being on this forum. Less time spending my money on stuff I don’t need on hotdeals and more time reading and learning from this forum 😉

There are big differences between data exploration versus data presentation. And you need to be aware of these differences as you're creating data stories and data presentations. Let’s start by defining our terms: Data exploration means the deep-dive analysis of data in search of new insights. Data presentation means...
Is Agile a reason to avoid documentation? I bet this question shows up again and again while working with product requirements. On one side, we have got long specifications, complicated diagrams, mystical technical design, too many prototypes and pretty obvious for engineers user guides (do we really need so much?). On the other side, can we actual...
The cloud-native application development has helped enterprises all around the globe reduce time-to-market, enhance performance, and develop agility and flexibility. Several enterprises are achieving these results by migrating their systems or traditional monolithic applications to the cloud. But to gain from the real benefits of cloud technology, ...
