This cohort should also look into Enterprise Data Analyst Associate certification. Database administrators, solution architects, data engineers, data scientists, AI engineers, and Power BI data analysts work in tandem. On an annual basis, a significant job demand is generated in this domain. But which expertise is most in demand in the data world?

2) Statistical programming: Thanks to R and Python programming languages that make cleaning, analysing, and visualising large data sets simpler. While Python is more widely used, and easier to learn R is a statistical language used for analysing and visual representation of data.
3) Machine learning: Though Machine learning expertise is not a requirement for data analysts mastering machine learning techniques provides a competitive edge and put you on the path to becoming a competent data scientist.

6) Econometrics: Econometrics is a method of estimating future trends by analyzing previous data. It employs mathematical and statistical models. Data analysts seeking employment in the financial sector, notably at investment banks and hedge funds, must know about it.
Data analytics is the science of finding significant patterns in data while “enterprise data analytics” (EDA) is a catch-all for the approaches, procedures, and tools used in the field. In fact, Microsoft has an exclusive certification course for enterprise data analyst aspirants.
Specific skills expected:
Implementing and managing a data analytics environment
