As documented by Kiran Raka

My keen interest in analytics drew me to dive further into the field. With over a decade’s work experience, I was delighted to work at Infosys as a Business System Analyst until my dependency on others began to bother me. The long-time yearning to learn data visualization tools and the latest things in business analytics grew, and I began to look for the best course online.  

My Career Journey So Far

I started my career in India in 2006 as a developer and became a project manager. Later I moved to the US in 2014 and joined Infosys as a Business System Analyst. I have 13+ years of experience. 

The Challenge

When I moved to the US, I faced many difficulties with the change in software and other things, because of which I was dependent on other teams for my projects. I had to seek assistance in creating tableau dashboards and other reports. The requirement to quickly create dashboards and Excel was a part of my day-to-day life. So, I began my quest for a good course that could provide me with the in-demand skills. 

The Simplilearn Solution

I just googled and found that Simplilearn is the world’s No. 1 Online Bootcamp. It was pretty impressive when I went through the website and saw the details. I planned to pursue postgraduate studies, but post-graduation courses generally take one year. So, I took this Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP) course. 

I had always thought working and learning simultaneously would be difficult, but with Simplilearn, the classes were on weekends, which I could easily manage. My experience with the Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP) course program was quite impressive, the faculty was too good, and I felt great that I had registered at the right place.  

Seamless Learning With Simplilearn

The learning journey was quite interesting. I liked the study material. Moreover, whenever I had any questions, I could raise a support ticket and have my project-related support. They shared sample projects for guidance. It really helped me understand the requirements and create and submit my project. In addition to the excellent material and the faculties, Simplilearn’s timing and test assessment were well-organized. I thoroughly enjoyed upskilling and have registered for the Salesforce course program that will begin in March.

The Simplilearn Impact

Not only was the journey impressive, but it also brought along fruitful results. Earlier, I knew Excel a bit, but I didn’t know it in detail. With this course, I gained the necessary skills and could create a Tableau dashboard by myself. My proficiency in Excel increased, and I can now efficiently manage my day-to-day work. I can indeed say that Simplilearn did help me a lot in my journey. 

With boosted self-reliance, I see myself inching closer towards my long-term goal of an SME and a higher level in the business analytics area in my organization, where I will be managing multiple projects and helping my team, and keeping them motivated.

Any working professional who wants to start a career or upskill to learn something new, it is time to stop your search for books and pdf on google. Instead of putting in the effort, like finding your material and trying to self-study, I would tell you to go for Simplilearn because they have the best faculties and amazing course material, which will definitely help you get certified.
