Certified Business Data Analyst
Business Data Analysts use data analysis tools and techniques to inform strategic business decisions. The role can be described as a hybrid between Data Analyst and Business Analyst.
Certified Data Analyst
A Data Analyst is someone who scrutinises information using data analysis tools. The meaningful results they pull from the raw data helps their employers or clients make important decisions by identifying various facts and trends.
Certified Data Applications Engineer
An Applications Engineer is an individual that designs, develops and tests software applications. They work throughout the software development life cycle in supporting application design, analysis, development and testing processes. They coordinate and help in product development by focusing on application development from both user and technical standpoints.
Certified Data Engineer
Data Engineers develop and implement strategies and tools for the collection, storage and visualisation of data from varied sources making them available for further analytical processing.
Certified Data Scientist
Data Scientists take large amounts of data (unstructured and structured) and use their skills in maths, statistics and programming to organise them. Then they apply all their analytic powers – industry knowledge, contextual understanding, skepticism of existing assumptions – to uncover hidden solutions to business challenges. To qualify you must possess a Bachelor’s Degree in a statistics, computer science or engineering related field.
Our certification is mapped to the Edison Framework (EDSF).
A Europe-wide project to establish the necessary skills and define Data Science as a professional practice across the continent.
The Edison Consortium includes industry and academic organisations from across Europe. The core consortium includes members from the University of Southampton, the University of Stavanger, the University of Amsterdam, the EGI Foundation, the Research Institute for Telecommunication and Cooperation and Inmark Europa.
The EDISON Data Science Framework is a collection of documents that define the Data Science profession. Freely available, these documents have been developed to guide educators and trainers, employers and managers, and Data Scientists themselves. This collection of documents collectively breakdown the complexity of the skills and competences need to define Data Science as a professional practice.
The Analytics Institute has based our qualifications on the Edison Framework.
