Tools recommendation for an aspiring BI Analyst

Question: As an aspiring BI analyst which tools should I learn?

Answer :  Please note that there are differences between a BI Analyst , BI BA , Data Analyst and Data Scientist. I will keep that for another post if you are interested.

In general for a BI Analyst it is not mandatory to have programming skills or SQL skills. So based on this here is the list as of today.

SQL (good to have)
Python (not mandatory)

Experience with at least one of the below listed tools is a "must have". Good to have experience in multiple tools.
  • Power BI
  • Tableau
  • Microstrategy Desktop and Enterprise
  • MS Excel (advanced)
  • Google Sheets
  • Google Data Studio
  • Qlik Sense
  • IBM Cognos Analytics
Apart from these it is also important to have good communication and presentation skills.
