Can a Business Analyst become a Data Analyst? Short answer – yes.

I’ll look at why a business analyst can become a data analyst and how someone can make this transition. We’ll look at training, skills, and how to take this business to data analyst career path.

If you’ve seen my video about business analyst vs data analyst roles, you’re already familiar with some of the differences between the jobs.

Business analysts analyze the organization, processes, systems, or a problem from a business lens. Data analytics is a portion of this work, but always as a means to an end. That is – a business analyst uses data to help support business decisions and changes.
