PURPOSE OF DATA ANALYST
Am sorry for asking this kind of question, but I need an answer from an expert in the field. Why using Data to answer some questions which are obviously available on the net. Since, google can answer all questions.
Google only has access to publicly available data. A large portion of the information needed to make better decisions for your company is private (which Google cannot provide). In that case, you need to be able to know:
1) Which information is needed
2) What data source contain this information
3) How to extract the data so that you can process them
4) Analyse the data so that you obtain the insights necessary for proper decision making.
I hope this helps.
