Sydney Power BI User Group – Power BI Roles and Career Paths
Power BI Roles and Career Paths
In the September meetup, Iman Eftekhari and Matt Allington spoke about Power BI roles and career paths.
A few years ago, there used to be only a few roles in the data analytics space, like BI Developer, DBA, Data Analyst, data architect. But Business intelligence has evolved, and it becomes a core part of the decision-making processes of companies of all types and sizes. Self-service BI tools have become more popular and Power BI has emerged as the leader in the business analytics space. Today, there is high demand for Power BI professionals in most organisations.
- But is there only one role for Power BI?
-Is there only one path to learn Power BI?
-What are the roles, responsibilities, and skills required in each of the below roles?
o Power BI Consultant
o Power BI Developer
o Power BI Report Builder
o Power BI Administrator
o Power BI Data Analyst
o Power BI Data Modeller
o Power BI Architect
During this session, Matt and Iman shared their own personal journeys and experiences, and discussed market demand and learning paths for each of the above roles.
