How Business Analysts Are Conquering Machine Learning

It’s never been a more exciting time to be an analytical professional. With the rise of big data, the explosion of data analytics and data science jobs, and the vast amount of business problems that can now be solved with machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), the time is ripe for data professionals to take the world by storm. 

 

Most business analysts don’t have the time or resources to develop traditional data science expertise – which is where automated machine learning technology comes in.

The dire shortage of traditionally trained data scientists has lead to an emerging opportunity for business analysts to advance their analytical careers by transitioning into Citizen Data Scientist roles in which they combine their unique business knowledge with AI technologies. The catch? Most business analysts don’t have the time or resources to develop traditional data science expertise – which is where automated machine learning technology comes in.

The DataRobot automated machine learning platform eliminates the barriers to machine learning for business analysts by automating many of the complex steps in machine learning model building that have traditionally required a trained data scientist.

 

With DataRobot, analytical professionals evolve into Citizen Data Scientists – no coding necessary.
