About the Webinar
So you’ve got a great team of data analysts but perhaps you’ve hit a lull. Is your team still pushing through an unnecessarily long reporting pipeline? Have senior leadership started pressuring you for faster insights? Perhaps your data engineers and IT operations team are drowning in a backlog of reporting requests, which is causing further delays!
SQL is important for data analysts for a wide variety of reasons and use cases. Most importantly, when business intelligence analysts can query their own data, they can significantly improve their time-to-insight and speed up the entire reporting pipeline. Additionally, understanding SQL allows you to unlock a much more powerful use of the best data visualization tools, like Tableau, Power BI, and Looker.
Simple SQL training can significantly improve your team’s performance. Long gone are the days in which your data analysts can get away with not knowing any SQL at all. If you’re in a position where your analytics team lacks practical skills in SQL, we highly recommend you attend this virtual event!
During this one-hour webinar, data expert Alex Christensen, will walk you through a multitude of use cases and easy-to-implement solutions. Additionally, he will discuss:
- Why SQL is important for data analysts
- What do data analysts do with SQL
- Which SQL should data analysts learn
- How to learn SQL quickly, even while working a full-time job
While this webinar is geared towards analytics managers and business intelligence leaders, it is also a great opportunity for data analysts and business analysts to grow.
