With the ongoing digital transformation of business and the fast pace of technology today, the rapid growth in the volume and variety of data in enterprise-level organizations has resulted in a proliferation of data silos. And the vast amounts of data in those silos can be difficult to analyze, interpret, and act on. Our new Azure Enterprise Data Analyst Associate certification is a key step for professionals who take that data from its various sources across the enterprise and then model and analyze it to inform and support effective business decisions.
Enterprise data analysts build on the Power BI data reporting and visualization skills applied by business users to incorporate modern data warehousing and big data analytics, using technologies like Azure Synapse Analytics. They also specialize in data governance, working with tools like Azure Purview in enterprise-scale data analytics solutions.
