How to become a BI/Data engineer?

A business's raw data can take many forms, such as marketing numbers, human resources information, budgets, or sales volumes. Business owners may be aware of this information, but they don't really see the value in it unless someone extracts it and displays it in an easy-to-understand format. Business intelligence (BI) is a set of technologies and practices that brings together all of these different types of data and extracts value from them.

Modern systems generate data using different applications. These applications contain different databases with varied information, for instance, enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), production systems, etc. With the company's growth, the number of applications rises, creating a variety of data sources. A significant amount of data is scattered all over in various formats across the company. This hampers analysis and visualization of the correct business state. Data engineers help extract meaningful information from this raw data.

The demand for BI and Data engineer jobs has skyrocketed as the need for data increased everywhere. Here is how you can pursue a career as a BI/Data engineer.

What is the scope of BI/Data engineering?

Business intelligence plays an important role in data collection, including interrogation, reporting, and answering questions about what happened in the past. Many businesspeople underestimate the power of business intelligence and think that business analytics will answer all their questions. In fact, business intelligence has a very important role to play in data collection, and it can answer many past questions as well.

The demand for data-related employment has grown dramatically in recent years, and this growth will continue as more firms embrace Big Data. Data engineers occupy a vital role in the data analysis process, transforming raw data into actionable business insights.

BI/Data engineers are highly skilled and command high salaries, because of their expertise in handling complex datasets and extracting useful information from them.

What are the roles and responsibilities of a BI/Data engineer?

Data engineers are responsible for conceptualizing and building a dependable infrastructure for translating data into forms that data scientists can understand. They must be able to identify trends in massive datasets and design scalable processes to transform semi-structured and unstructured data into usable representations. They essentially prepare and transform raw data so that it may be used for analytical or operational purposes.
The job of a Business Intelligence Developer is to collaborate with end customers to create reporting systems that deliver easy-to-understand data for decision-making. By analyzing warehouse data, the BI Developer leverages business intelligence to solve organizational challenges. The Business Intelligence Developer is a member of an organization's analytics team who focuses on data design, access, utilization, security, and quality of information assets across the company.
A typical workday of BI/Data engineer consists of:

  • Work on the design, development, and implementation of BI platforms' data architectures
  • Offer suggestions to enhance the client's current BI model's performance, data handling, and development process efficiency
  • Managed the integration of new data quality components in the client's platform
  • Build and maintain detailed dimensional data models and multidimensional databases
  • Provide assistance in extracting data from the source system and entering it into the data warehouse staging area
  • Validate data, ensure data accuracy, and ensure that business rules are applied to data
  • Keep a record of ongoing maintenance and operations for future reference
  • Design, build, refactor, and maintain web services to consume stored data

Skills required to become a BI/Data engineer

The first step is to learn the fundamental skills that will enable you to land a high-paying job as a BI/Data engineer. Let's go over what you should be aware of.

1. BI platform

Companies use business intelligence software to collect information from internal and external sources. When interviewing, you can expect to be asked to evaluate the platform the company uses, whether that's Oracle, Microsoft, Tableau, or MicroStrategy. It's important to have a general understanding of the platform's features and any new features included in the latest version. You should also have a solid grasp of the technical architecture and how it compares to other BI platforms on the market.

2. Hadoop and Spark

HTML and CSS are a great fit for a text-only website, as they are predominantly static. JavaScript is also a valuable addition to responsive websites. It gives you the option of adding interactive features to your sites, such as polls, slideshows, and forms that automatically detect touchscreen users’ clicks. This client-side programming language lets you add dynamic features, including but not limited to page animation, scrolling, audio, and video, to your website.

3. C++

Among programming languages, the C++ language is deemed to be among the most effective for handling huge volumes of data. It can perform data calculations at a speed of 1 gigabyte per second. This makes it possible for C++ to perform predictive analytics in real-time while maintaining the integrity of the system of record.

4. Data modeling

Because you work as a Business Intelligence Developer, you need to first set up the environment on the BI Platform. This is necessary to enable reporting and data analysis. You will need to communicate with your colleagues in order to comprehend corporate operations and how data moves through the organization. Great SQL skills are required to be able to alter and retrieve data. Finally, you need to understand the organization's BI Platform so that you can build the environment using the platform's specific capabilities.

5. Azure

Azure is a cloud platform from Microsoft that makes the deployment, management, and support of servers and applications easier. With an easy-to-deploy bundled analytics solution, Azure simplifies the deployment and support of servers and applications. Pre-built services for everything from data storage to powerful machine learning are included in the package. It is important for BI/Data engineers to specialize in Azure.

6. Data APIs

An API (application programming interface) enables front-end and back-end applications to interact with each other to complete a specific job. For example, web applications use an API to interact between the user interface and the back-end functionality and data. An API allows an application to read a database, get information from relevant tables in the database, process the request, and deliver an HTTP-based response to the web template, which is then shown in the web browser. For data scientists and business intelligence analysts to query the data, data engineers provide APIs in databases.
