Data Analytics Tools 

Hey guys! Hope this is the right section for this. So I'm a fresher with a year of experience in the field and wanted to know:

What are your opinions on storing, cleaning, and managing data using pure code only (Python, R, etc.) compared to using a tool that makes storing, analyzing, cleaning and visualizing data easier? 

I'm currently using Tesser Insights' tool for this and it's made the process very easy without code. So I wanna know some of your opinions on this.

Re: Data Analytics Tools 

Hi Jade,

Firstly, let me introduce myself. I am a Business Analyst manager and have been in the BA industry for over 33 years. I’ve been both a BA and for the last 10 years a BA Manager, managing teams of BAs. Predominately, this has been with mid-size companies, but it has varied.

So, typically my opinion would be that whilst Code has its place, a company continually evolves – especially it’s data. It may have data stored in 3rd party applications as well as it’s own data lake.

As a result, your code will have to continually be monitored and updated to ensure that the process is meeting any changes in the IT landscape.

My point here being that in a mid to large company, where such changes are frequent, it would be quicker, easier and cheaper for me to use a tool to perform those tasks. As a manager, responsible for that data, I would also have a degree of concern about security and what that code is doing. Now of course,  you could say the same about a 3rd party tool, but it has professional reputation to uphold, whereas as developer does not necessarily.

So would I use a developer to write the code? No probably not. Simply because it could be done cheaper, quicker and easier via a tool.
