Frequently Asked Questions

If you haven’t found your answer from our FAQ, please send us a message.
What is business intelligence?

Business intelligence combines business analytics, data visualization, data tools and infrastructure, and data mining to help organizations make data-driven decisions. With modern BI tools, organizations can get a comprehensive view of their data and use it to reduce inefficiencies, drive change, and adapt to changing marketing conditions.

What is a business intelligence analyst?

A business intelligence analyst is someone who turns data into insights. Typically, they use data transformation tools like Power Query or SQL, and data visualization tools like Power BI and Tableau, to help them tell stories with data. BI analysts are technically minded, but must also understand the businesses they work in, how they operate, and what the key levers for performance are. Using this knowledge will help them deliver reports and dashboards that focus on key, actionable insights and trends.
