What is a data analyst?

A data analyst enables businesses to maximize the value of their data assets through visualization and reporting tools. They're also responsible for profiling, cleaning, and transforming data. Their responsibilities also include designing and building scalable and effective data models, and enabling and implementing the advanced analytics capabilities into reports for analysis. A data analyst works with the pertinent stakeholders to identify appropriate and necessary data and reporting requirements, and then they're tasked with turning raw data into relevant and meaningful insights.
