Most organizations value data but not many can adequately use it.
Many companies with a structure in place for big data analytics struggle to harness its power.
That’s why data analysts are so valuable to a company—they know how to harness the power of a data analytics tool.
Data Analysts Implement Big Data Analytics
Part of working smarter means first having the structure in place to generate big data analytics. Having Data analysts who implement software tools to aid with data collection and reporting is a huge step in the right direction. That’s because 63 percent “of organizations do not use any technology to analyse, track, and monitor the performance of their supply chains.”
Big Data Tools Bring Analytics Into One Place
Think of all the things you do every day that generates data—phone taps, emails sent, phone calls made, and more. Use a software tool to trap data points so they can’t get away from you.
Data analytics tools aggregate all that data under one roof. This will improve your performance as a data analyst, and it will allow your organization to move the needle on its key performance indicators.
Tell A Story From Big Data
The consulting firm Robert Half says that data analysis is only part of what makes a data analyst successful.
“It's one thing to be able to analyze data effectively … but written and verbal communications skills are key for any analyst because they'll need to clearly explain their findings to senior executives, as well as counterparts in marketing, accounting, [and more].”
Data analysts can use software tools to weave disparate data points together into a cohesive story
Data Analysts Drive Decisions
Consider the following statistics from a 2013 Deloitte report:
- 49 percent of respondents assert that the greatest benefit of using analytics is that it is a key factor in better decision-making capabilities.
- 16 percent believe that (analytics’) greatest benefit is better enabling key strategic initiatives.
- Nearly two-thirds of respondents say that analytics play an important role in driving business strategy.
Data analysts must be able to use data to deliver insights to senior leadership. You can do this through using a powerful software platform.
