Or why not? I'm currently a BI analyst and wondering if I should try to transition to DS.

      Doubt it. SQL is probably here to stay. It’s not just the language, but the under-the-hood architecture powering everything that the syntax of SQL is tightly bound to

      Yeah, learn SQL. It's a reasonably easy language and much more efficient for pulling/summarizing data. I think you can connect excel to a database so that it could shave off some time from automating reports.

      That's be perfect. I spend so much time doing it manually. It could all be repetitive. You're not taking about VBA right?

      I don't know much about VBA. I'm referring to Power Query (or something like that) in excel. It's built off Power BI, a Microsoft tool similar to Tableau.

      Gotcha. I'll have to look into that then. I'm not that advanced.

    More technical. Generally “sexier” title
