What Skills Does an Oracle BI Developer Need In 2019?

by HSG on Nov 26, 2018 in

 

Welcome to the career field of Business Intelligence. Business Intelligence is a concept that involves a certain level of interaction within an organism, analytically and dynamically, to come to business solutions which implement better, more effective and timely decision making. These solutions are reached by establishing an understanding of the right kinds of user data: what is going well, what is going wrong, taking and monitoring certain actions, previously unknown trends, and patterns, and improved collaboration. When all of this data is taken into account, the entire decision-making process, within a business, will inevitably improve. As an Oracle BI developer, there are specific skills which will drastically make your job easier and results more effective. As time goes on and technology changes, the list is constantly being updated. The following are skills an Oracle Business Intelligence Developer might need to know or learn in 2019.

 

Communication

 

Selecting the correct SQL Join to combine tables requires extensive discussion with a variety of people from multiple different backgrounds, experience, and areas of expertise. Being able to concisely communicate is important as an Oracle BI developer. Considering OBIEE is the concept of effective interaction within an organization, clear communication is obviously an important factor. Adequate communication includes asking the right questions in order to discover how exactly groups and individuals go about performing their day-to-day duties and tasks. Many businesses fail due to a lack of communication between IT and other parts of the company.

 

Structured Query Language (SQL)

 

No IT or data-oriented career can escape SQL. When it comes to business intelligence, developers will sometimes need to query directly with the source and pull data into BI platforms via SQL. A majority of developer jobs, not limited to Oracle, require knowledge of SQL. Any respectable business intelligent role will make potential prospected employees undergo a rigorous SQL test before hiring them.

 

Data Modeling

 

Implementing successful and useful OBIEE requires the reporting of data and related analytics. In order to use this data, a developer must set up an environment, within Oracle. Understanding the flow of data is just the first step in data modeling. Afterward, the developer will define and maintain all beneficial structures of data within the BI. Ultimately, mastering the skills of data modeling will take time and practice.

 

Data Visualization

 

Next, a developer will need to know how to sufficiently present this data to businesses and organizations. Presenting data boils down to the decision makers grasping what would otherwise be difficult concepts to express. These decision makers need to clearly see analytic data in order to process it to make the best and optimal decision regarding business intelligence.

 

Analytic Skills

 

That's right. The ability to understand and breakdown collections of data is indispensable to an Oracle BI developer. Coming to detailed business conclusions involves the analyzation of many different scenarios and data sets. Analytics aren't limited to the role of a business intelligence analyst. In this line of work, BI roles will often overlap, requiring certain employees to learn from and communicate with other employees within the same organization. Good analytic skills are ideal when learning the flow of data, from the operational systems to transformation stages and then to the final decision making processes.
