Working in the Business Intelligence and data analysis sector requires knowledge of particular tools and their functionalities and relevant knowledge and experience. While serving clients, implementing systems such as Power BI, or searching for new projects, it is essential to have up-to-date knowledge, preferably in a documented form. Microsoft Certifications come in handy and are a vital element in educating people professionally involved in the new technology and IT sector. EBIS consultants also benefit from this form of confirmation of their competences, which is reflected in the Microsoft Data Analyst Associate certificates they have received.

Microsoft Data Analyst Associate – how does the certification process work?

Data analysts help companies maximise the value of their data assets through the implementation of Microsoft Power BI. As subject matter experts, they are responsible for designing and building scalable data models, segmenting and transforming data, and visualising it. In this way, they help turn data into valuable business information.

However, for this process to be effective, data analysts need to continuously improve their competencies and keep up to date with new BI systems’ functionalities. For Power BI, a valuable certification is the Microsoft Data Analyst Associate. To earn it, you must pass the DA-100: Analyzing Data with Microsoft Power BI exam, which covers topics including:

data preparation – extracting data from various data sources, profiling it, cleaning it, transforming it and loading it,

modelling – designing and developing a data model, creating measures using DAX, optimising model performance,

visualising – creating reports and dashboards, enriching reports in terms of usability,

data analysis – improving reports to gain insight and more in-depth data analytics,

managing datasets and workspaces.

As you can see, the scope of the material covers many aspects of using Power BI. So anyone who decides to take the exam should prepare solidly for it. The pass rate is 70/100, but questions to the use cases presented and single and multiple-choice questions require knowledge.
