One time, I was having lunch with someone who worked in a creative profession. He told me there’s a difference between guys like him and guys like me. He uses the right brain. He can’t get ideas out of his head. I’m a left brainer, he said. I think logically and analytically.
A big problem in business intelligence is the shortage of qualified professionals. That includes developers, analysts, data scientists and managers.
The current strategy many employers use to hire for these positions focuses on experience. They will require so many years experience in R, Python, and / or SQL. If it's a data scientist job, they will often include a masters degree as a requirement as well.
