Analytics as a profession

This profession, with roots in computer modelling, statistics and mathematics used in a business setting, has combined an analytical approach to business problems, with solutions based on sound statistical and financial methods. There is a great degree of scope and opportunity for specialisation in diverse areas across government and private sectors, suggesting the need for a unified and comprehensive analysis of standards of practice and industry regulations.

The Role of IAPA

The IAPA will serve as a forum for the various professional issues within the analytics field. As the sector evolves with advances in technology, professional practices and regulations, the IAPA will act as a contact point for professionals and businesses involved in Analytics, offering all the services of a professional association. It will be a resource for professionals, providing information and opportunities to meet and liaise with others involved in the industry. In addition, it will inform and regulate the industry as to professional standards and codes of practice. There will also be links to educational facilities, with opportunities to obtain certified training in the appropriate disciplines, as well as strong ties with software providers and industry experts with a proven business history. The IAPA will be a nucleus of all aspects of the Analytics profession, providing information and support to its members.
