The life of a business analyst can be stressful. You start early and work late stitching together and cleaning up data. Your organization depends on you to make swift decisions, but there’s so much manual work involved as you pull data from various systems, spreadsheets, and e-mails and try to make it fit together. It is only with the miracle of caffeine that you can get your reports done on time. The data you’re responsible for is tough to get, tough to transform in a way that’s useful, tough to clean and reconcile, and tough to visualize for decision making.
