A Business Intelligence Analyst understands the strategic goals and tactical issues facing an organization, and uses a combination of technology and statistics to provide senior management with the information they need. Typically, this is done through the maintenance of a data warehouse, a special data repository from which strategic information may be harvested, using data mining techniques to compute predictive analytics. Business analysts have strong computational and analytical skills, and are comfortable with both statistics and technology. They are able to anticipate and fill senior executives' data needs, often through the use of real-time dashboards.
