Frequently asked questions

Is data analysis easy to learn?

It’s different for everyone. Some people pick up data analysis very quickly, while others need a bit more time. The underlying theory and concepts are not hard to understand (or highly technical), but you’ll need to learn a few popular data analysis tools. 

This includes SQL and databases, a programming language such as Python or R, spreadsheets and Excel, and software such as Power BI or Tableau. 

It might sound like a lot, but each technology is easy to learn individually, especially when you choose data analysis courses from a dedicated online training provider like DataCamp.

Has AI changed the role or need for data analysts?

AI is indeed transforming the data analyst's role. Rather than replacing them, it has automated repetitive tasks, freeing analysts to focus on complex issues, interpret AI results, and strategize. Although AI aids in data analysis, human supervision for training and adjusting AI models remains crucial. Thus, AI is changing the analyst role but increased its importance.

Which data analysis course is the best?

We only release courses that meet our high quality standards, which is why DataCamp is known as a leading platform for learning data analysis! That being said, our Data Analyst with Python Career Track is one of our most popular, comprehensive course programs for acquiring the skills to become a data analyst from scratch.

And importantly, becoming a data analyst requires dedication and consistency in learning, while embracing a positive attitude towards problem-solving. Applying your knowledge to real-world projects helps solidify concepts, and creating a data portfolio to showcase these projects can demonstrate your proficiency to potential employers.

See our 'How to become a data analyst' article for further guidance.

What jobs can you get with data analysis skills?

  • Data analyst
