TDWI Pulse Report | The Modern Analyst: Meeting Tomorrow’s Challenges

September 21, 2020

Organizations want to modernize their analytics to compete in today’s rapidly changing world. As part of the move to modern analytics, a new breed of business analyst is beginning to emerge—the modern analyst.

The modern analyst understands the business, proactively solves business problems with analytics, and drives strategic insights. He or she uses new tools such as next-generation self-service solutions that enable nontechnical users to interact with data using natural language (rather than traditional SQL) or point and click on relational table elements.

As organizations push forward to modernize analytics, their priorities must change. Analytics must become strategic, doable, and consumable by a wide range of people; it must permeate the organization. Organizations need to democratize analytics to scale out their analytics efforts, perform more forward-looking and real-time work, allow more people across the organization to perform analytics, and derive more insights and value from analytics.

This TDWI Pulse Report uses recently collected data from a global survey to examine how data and analytics professionals would like to see the analyst role change as well as how to measure analytics value. It offers several best practices to help your enterprise move forward.
