BI Consultant

As a BI (Business Intelligence) consultant, you prepare, transform and make data analysable.

You act as a link between IT and the respective departments.

Your goal is to use your company’s collected data as profitably as possible. You are not only responsible for analysing the data but also placing it into a business context.

The duties of a Data Engineer are very diverse. In general terms, they take care of all processes related to the generation, storage, maintenance, processing, enrichment and transfer of data. An important aspect here is the setup and monitoring of the hardware and software infrastructure - starting with the conception, purchase and installation of all necessary components up to decisions about what software and services are used.
