What will you be doing as a data & analytics consultant?
As data & analytics consultant, you’re welcome to work on one, multiple or even all of these 4 key domains of data & analytics:
- Data capturing. You extract and bring together as much structured, semi- and unstructured data as possible, wherever it may reside. You unlock different types of data resources. Set up data lakes or warehouses. Create on-premise and cloud implementations. And more. Some of the systems that help you do this are Azure Data Factory, SQL Server Integration Services, SAP Data Warehousing (BW4 and HANA Native), Azure Databricks, Azure Data Lake and more.
- Data and information management. You not only integrate and enrich data, you also manage the data architecture, modelling, governance, quality and security. Hereby you also design and optimize processes. Systems you regularly deploy for this are SQL Server, SAP HANA, SAP Data Intelligence, SAP MDG, Winshuttle, Profisee suite and more. You’ll also use the newest and latest technologies on data governance.
- Visualization. You make sure the data is properly visualized, both content- and design-wise. You set up interactive reports and dashboards, fully mobile enabled. Agility is key here too! You’re able to use self-service analytics tools such as SAP Analytics Cloud, Power BI or Tableau to achieve that.
- Analytics and data science. You help your customers generate the right type of insights. From reporting on past events or handling large volumes of data (you can think in the multi-TB range) to predicting and even prescribing future events (the data science part). This is where the ‘data rubber’ hits the ‘analytics road’. Not an easy task in a complex, multi-platform data environment. Robovision, DataStories, Azure Machine Learning Services, Azure Databricks , SAP Data Intelligence, R or Python are at your disposal.
As a data & analytics consultant, you never stop learning. You can stay up to date on the latest advances in AI, IoT, machine learning and any other technological innovation which spawns data (which is literally ‘every technological innovation’!). Taking the lead in projects or taking up a role as coach within the team is also possible to broaden your experience.
Know that as a delaware consultant, you’ll be able to do all this for a wide variety of medium to large-sized companies, across every type of industry, locally as well as internationally.
