Presentation Title: Business Data Analytics - A CBDA Snapshot
Presentation Description: Data analytics are important for businesses to understand the past, interpret the current, and chart the future, based on data. Business data analytics is the BA's role in the discipline. The Certification in Business Data Analytics (CBDA) is one of four “specialty” certifications offered by the IIBA. Data Analytics is a domain that has garnered a great deal of attention as more and more organizations are seeking to become “data driven.” More than Data Analysts or Data Scientists, BAs have a unique opportunity to leverage their analysis skills to be a driving force in this transition. This session will focus on understanding how core business analysis skills, combined with the ability to be agile and an understanding of the domain of data science and analysis can provide an organization with a path toward using their data assets to secure competitive advantage.
