Typical Day
Typical Day
Typical Day
I get ready to start my day in the dynamic and exciting world of Business Analytics. I work as a Data Analyst in a top financial services firm and act as a key resource to my team which manages investigation of past business performance, using data and statistical models, to develop new insights and understanding of future business performance. Our typical day is never typical as one day could be spent on Data Analytics using advanced tools while the other could be doing Predictive Modeling using Linear and Logistic Regression.
10:00 AM
A typical day begins at 10:00 AM with checking up on my mails over the previous day. I received over the previous day. I am currently working with a US Software Giant and am responsible for providing insights to enable marketing for their primary portal. I read the current industry news on our clients.
10:30 AM
I have organized a group meeting to review the project plan. We are going to discuss data preparation and the different analysis to be performed. We revisit the hypothesis that we defined before conducting the survey. The research project is classified into three categories: Data Preparation, Statistical Analysis and Report Preparation and Presentation. Then we set the deadlines for each tasks and start working on that. Normally, it takes 20-30 days for a Market Research Project.
11:30 AM
I meet the Data Preparation team separately. Data Preparation is very critical for any research project as all the insights are based on the scrubbed and filtered data. A small error can skew the finding drastically. All the data preparation is done using SAS. I check the availability of the data sets and perform data quality checks.
1:30 PM
I break for lunch with my colleagues. We chat about the team activities, industry and company updates as well as current affairs.
2:30 PM
I head into a meeting with the project manager who interacts with clients. We have discussed the project plan in details. I take his inputs and make necessary changes in the plan and action accordingly. Then I head into a meeting with the team members to run them through the updated plan. We also discuss the challenges and impact on the deliverables due to these changes.
4:00 PM
Quick Coffee Break
5:00 PM
I have a call with the client to update the project status. I share the data quality checks and analysis deck with them. I also share the built statistical models with them and note down their suggestions for improvement. Finally I send the client an email with timelines for the next set of deliverables.
6:00 PM
I have a call with project representatives in the Australian legal and compliance teams to understand the regulatory requirements related to the project.
7:30 PM
Team discussion after call and plan for next day
8:00 PM
A drop home after a long day

Testimonial

  • sagar-a
    Poorti Mehta C-SAS

    Imarticus Learning offers a comprehensive course in Business Analytics.

    To give an edge to my profile and to make a transition, I had enrolled myself in the SAS training. The training was for about 3 months. Not only did the training provide us with excellent hands on, it also gave us an exposure to the analytics industry. From mock interview sessions, technical training and resume building session, the SAS course was a complete package. Even today the faculty at Imarticus is just a call away when we need guidance. For those trying to move into analytics or planning to learn more, Imarticus Learning would be a good choice. And if you can’t make up your mind, then the institute is always open to counsel you; that’s what I did when I was zeroing down on options.”

    I heard about this course in SAS which was offered by Imarticus.

    Our instructor made it feel so simple that I completely forgot that I was from a non-IT background. I didn’t miss any of his lectures and it helped me clear my Base SAS and Advance SAS certification in the first attempt with good marks. The non-teaching staff at Imarticus is also very helpful and the Institution provides a good environment for learning.”
