Welcome to the Business Analysis Process course, the second course in the Tableau Business Intelligence Analyst Professional Certificate. In the previous course, you briefly learned about the differences between business analytics and business analysis. While this certificate is geared toward preparing you for a career in business analytics, it is important for you to understand the field of business analysis for the reasons listed below. Note that business analytics is performed by a business intelligence (BI) analyst, whereas business analysis is performed by a business analyst. As a BI analyst, understanding the role of a business analyst can help you to better collaborate with them to gather data from various parts of the organization, identify issues, and recommend solutions based on data insights. This collaboration can result in better-informed decision-making and more effective strategies for achieving business success. In this course, you’ll learn about a framework for the business analysis process, which, at a high level, involves understanding the business problem, determining the requirements to solve the problem, and then delivering a solution. This week, you’ll dive into the first part of the framework, which involves understanding the business problem.
