Certification options 

Hello!  A month ago I completed a 5-month course of study in data analysis/business intelligence.  My DA/BI knowledge is limited to my school and lab work.  Haven't held any paid positions yet but looking.  Also looking into certification.

I haven't given much thought to a career path.  I like writing queries, database planning and creation and design, and planning scheduled tasks for things like backup and maintenance.  So in my ideal job I would do those a lot.  I would not pursue management or leadership roles. 

My guidance counselor recommended I pursue certification in Access, which she said would be foundational, but I'm interested in anything an analysis professional might say on the subject (certifying).  Specifically, is MCP (she also mentioned this) and/or MOS a realistic goal for a newb?  Also, is anyone certified in Access?  I think that would be an MOS.  

Again, any stray thoughts or insights are welcome, I'm a sponge now and soaking up everything.

Thank you so much.

Hi Harriet,

 

Firstly forget MS Access certification. Complete waste of time.

 

I recommend you look at Data Analysis/Scientist. Being able to make sense of the reams of data and the IoT is only going to get more in demand. Tools such as R, SPSS and other proprietary ones are in wide use.

 

You'll need to go back to school and do a degree unless you can talk your way into it where you work now.

Good luck

Process mapping vs. process discovery is akin to perceived reality vs. reality; the former rooted in subjectivity, the latter rooted in verifiable data. Elements of process mapping creep into process discovery, restricting an absolute dichotomy between the two. However, the critical differentiator between mapping and discovery lies in the distincti...
