FAQS

With rise of digitization, organizations are flooded with ever increasing flow of information. A business analyst or a data analyst uses a combination of skills to derive actionable insights which can be vital for making smart decisions. And in this scenario, businesses rely upon Data Analysis skills more than ever before to stay competitive. This is why business analytics demand has surged globally, creating a huge demand for business analysts. Analytics Industry in India is expected to grow 7 times in next 7 years (from 2019 to 2025), as per the finding of ‘Analytics Industry Study 2018’ conducted by AIM & AnalytixLabs. So, like all previous years the demand of Business Analyst will stay strong with promising opportunities across various domains. 

If we go with trends suggest by LinkedIn and Glassdoor some of the top organizations hiring for business analytics in India are Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Accenture, Cognizant, Deloitte, American Express, Evalueserve, Ernst & Young, Amazon and Flipkart.

In terms of salary packages, Business Analysts are some of the highest paid professionals as compared to their peers. As per Glassdoor, the average beginner level salary for a business analyst in India is INR 6,44,857 per annum. However, post some experience analysts earn up to INR 12,00,000 per year, especially those who are adept at the latest techniques and tools. With higher experience and well established domain expertise, salaries can range anywhere between INR 25,00,000 to INR 40,00,000 annually.

 

No, coding skills are not mandatory for Business Analytics. Most of the analysis can be performed using the tools like Excel, Tableau, Power BI without coding, whereas while working on SQL one needs basic understanding of SQL commands. However, to leverage advanced analytics it is helpful to have working knowledge of specialized tools, like R and Python. But even in this case with right coaching, candidates with no-prior technical background can work effectively on these tools.

For most of the aspirants a professional certification can effectively help in up-skilling and acquiring job relevant skills in usually around 6 months (with part-time training).  Apart from this there are several post-graduate programs available, with duration of 1 or 2 years and average investment ranging from 6-12 lakhs. In short to medium term, part-time certification offer better ROI, but this may vary based on candidate’s overall profile and career stage. 

In best case scenario, an undergraduate degree in quantitative or technical stream, possible followed by an MBA and then a certified course in BA would ensure your access to the upper echelons of BA jobs. Going with an institute of certain repute is one of the best options, but candidates should consider some key aspects:

• Domain expertise: Given the popularity, plethora of institutes have jumped into this foray. But only handful of institutes bring domain expertise, deep intellectual property and significant experience to deliver industry relevant program. 

• Industry recognition: A top institute would have strong industry presence in the particular domain, with prestigious clientele. This certainly adds meaningful value to the certificate and industry recognition.

• Mentors’ experience: It is utmost important that faculty members/ mentors have vast industry experience and also strong hands-on themselves.

• Industry relevant curriculum: Curriculum should cover latest tools and techniques with enough practical components. Frequent curriculum upgradation is key in such a fast evolving field.

• Projects and case studies: Projects and assignments should have extensive coverage of real world problems from key industries, so that it inculcates confidence in candidates to face interviews and on job challenges.

• Post class support: It is imperative that candidates have ample support available outside class hours for doubts and problems they face while self-studying and working on projects. Institutes with only part time instructors usually lack in this important aspect. 

 

Among numerous institutes, AnalytixLabs is certainly one of the finest and well renowned option. AnalytixLabs has been a pioneer in Data Science learning since 2011 and is constantly rated among India’s top institute with repeated clientele of several prestigious MNCs. Considering the value for money, industry relevant programs and stellar track record no one can overlook the value proposition AnalytixLabs offers when it comes to Business Analytics certification.

Analytics job roles usually demand combination of skills and same is true when it comes to tools. To deliver a project effectively, one may need combination of different tools. We can categorize the most popular tools as following:

MIS Reporting and Descriptive Analytics – MS-Excel, Tableau, QlikView, Power BI and SQL

Advanced Analytics/ Statistical Modelling/ Machine Learning – SAS, R and Python

Over last few years new tools like Tableau, QlikView, Power BI with particular focus on data visualization have become very prominent, whereas incumbents like SAS have lost ground to open source tools like R & Python when it comes to advanced analytics.


A comprehensive Business Analytics certification program like Business Analytics 360, covers following keys aspects as part of the curriculum:

Analytics Methodologies: Develop conceptual understanding and learn practical application of various analytical methods, interpretation of different steps involved in end-to-end analytics projects, such as data handling, data extraction, descriptive & predictive analytics using statistical modelling and machine learning techniques. 

Analytics Tools: Build hands-on skills on most widely used tools like Excel, SQL, Tableau/ Power BI, R and Python to enable candidates to work effectively on real world problems and be job ready. 

Business problem solving: No tools and techniques are of use unless they don’t provide any real business value. An accomplished analyst must know how to define, structure and approach a given problem. With help of multiple case studies and projects spread across the course curriculum, candidates learn to effectively leverage combination of different tools and techniques to answer critical business questions and solve different type of problems. 

Some of the common designations offered to business analytics professional are:- Business Analyst, Data Analyst, Analyst, Analytics consultant, Analytics specialist. This depends on the organizational structure and candidates experience and education background. However, in the present world corporate structures are dynamic and designations can vary from organization to organization. One should mainly understand the nature of work and what type of responsibilities a given job role entails.

For a Business Analytics professional work primarily revolves around data, which could be gathered from varied resources, like market research, operations, internal CRM, ERP and BI systems. Business Analytics comprises of deciphering the past trends and/ or make predictions with combination of different analytics tools and methodologies. This ensures the right and most effective action is undertaken. The execution of these occurs by combining statistical software findings with business know-how while trying to reach ideal business solutions.  These solutions are shared with stakeholders who utilise this information to make operational and strategic decisions. A skilled Business Analytics professional gauges the quality of data, understand business objective, utilises relevant techniques to generate superior data-driven business decisions.

An experienced analytics professional is also expected to develop domain expertise over a period of time with deep business understanding of at least one industry, for example Retail, FMCG, e-Commerce, Insurance, Banking, Finance, Travel and Logistics etc.

Business Analytics provides a golden opportunity for young professionals to switch to the strategic side of the business. This is certainly a lucrative and sought after job, which involves a lot of hard work to internal and external client expectations.


Minimum qualification to pursue Business Analyst career track is graduation and for Analytics it helps to have graduate degree in quantitative streams, like engineering, eaths, statistics, econometrics, operation research. 

After graduation, one has choice of pursuing career in Business Analytics through a certification course. However, for some high paying jobs, which involves consulting and advisory roles, companies prefer candidates with Masters in Management (MBA) or other quantitative fields . Although this degree doesn’t essentially gets you in the field of Business Analytics, but it propels the career faster from base position with higher salary. 

Although it not a prerequisite, but good communication skill is important for a Business Analytics professional. As part of the work, a Business Analyst needs to understand the problem and ask the right questions to deliver the project effectively. As part of day to day responsibilities, Business analysts interacts with the client often, hence, it is important put forward different business and technical aspects articulately.

I joined the Base and Advanced SAS course with a duration of 1.5 months. The course was quite comprehensive, and being from a non analytics background, I was still able to grasp the concepts easily. The teaching manner is quite interactive, and lucid. The instructors are very approachable, and ready to give individual assistance when required. I also found the class study material very helpful, and it gave me confidence to approach the problems independently, thanks to the assignments and case studies. Besides, the structured approach provided towards SAS Global certification preparation is quite good. Definitely a fruitful course!
