I’m a business analyst working on SAS and now aspiring to learn R and hadoop as well.Will it be a good option for my career?
I too worked on sas in starting of my career and later moved on to learn R , Python and Big Data.
Only thing which didn’t changed is the data mining techniques. Most of the algorithm’s which we apply for our model building are decades old . So, What makes this field so lucrative and hot these days?
What companies expect from us ?
- An Analyst who can juggle between different tools and techniques to finally reach to some actionable insights.
- Someone who have Good statistics knowledge, good aptitude,hands on on multiple tools.
So, its not a disadvantage to have knowledge on multiple tools, because if you see, lately , open source
like R and Python are much talked and most of the new companies work on it .
I would suggest you to learn as much it is possible , because no one knows , in what company and in what project , what it will require ??
