In to technologies including ASP.NET, ADO.NET, SQL

In order to understand the intricacies of analytics as a whole, I decided my next logical progression, an MS in Business Analytics. Once I had decided on my future course of study, I started to enhance my soft skills and technical knowledge to build up and develop a knowledge base. Therefore, I joined Tata Consultancy Services Pvt. Limited (TCS) as a Systems Engineer where I was introduced to technologies including ASP.NET, ADO.NET, SQL and Database Management System. Working in Workforce Management System project for the Telecom domain as a .NET Developer  helped me gain acquaintance with different stages of Software Development Lifecycle and factors to be considered during software development. My project scope was to migrate critical data from an old system to a new upgraded one. The data was highly convoluted and needed to be analysed and sorted as per the design of the new system. Since I had to deal with large amount of data I used SQL database to store and analyse client data. Using SQL queries data was sorted as per design of new system. Also, it helped me to analyse data and make informed decision. I also honed my skills of computer systems aided through IIBA approved Business Analysis trainings in BA tools, Enterprise Analysis, Requirement Planning and Management, Solution Validation and Assessment, Process Modeling tool. Being a part of the corporate environment instilled in me the importance of analytics. I realized that in this data driven world every business is peddling up to capture all the data and apply analytics to predict future outcomes and identify new opportunities. As Allbert Einstein quotes “Not everything that can be counted counts, not everything that counts can be counted” perfectly explains what analytics can provide us with.  I aim to learn how to grapple with this unprecedented amount of information using business analytics. It would prove futuristic to learn business analytics, which has become the most fundamental skill today. Also, I foresee a bright future in analytics.
