Characteristics of the Olympic Data Analyst
The Olympic analyst uses modern analytics to streamline the data preparation process in order to move on rather quickly to detecting and uncovering patterns, collaborating and clarifying with teams, and ultimately producing insights.
The analyst without self-service analytics is likely stuck in spreadsheets and static PPT reports, or emailing reports. Meanwhile, the Olympic analyst is self-service with both intuitive analytics software and dashboard reporting.
Those who truly excel are the analysts who figure out how to use self-service analytics to find answers quickly and move on to more advanced analytics used to drive the business forward.
The Olympic analyst, equipped with an end-to-end analytics platform, will have much more time to collaborate cross-functionally.
They are simply freed to go beyond descriptive analysis and well into the specialized terrain of advanced analytics, including spatial, predictive, and prescriptive analysis.
Analysts possess intellectual curiosity, problem-solving prowess, and they love to find insight. They have the creativity to think beyond the typical answers to questions asked.
These days professionals are learning the skills they need on the job and by being resourceful exploring the new technology available.
