Data Analytics and Business Intelligence are both fast-paced worlds. New trends are coming up quite frequently, and if you want to do a good job and improve your skills, you must keep yourself up-to-date. Even though there is plenty of information online (including whitepapers or case studies displaying current trends), it can be difficult to digest all the information published online and find the time to read important news.

Instead of looking for new trends on your own and reading tons of newspapers to stay informed, what about using social media in order to learn new things? According to a study, people spend an average of two hours and 22 minutes per day on different social media channels like Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram. Some of that time can be used for reading the thoughts and updates from the most important Business Intelligence and Data Science influencer online. They will keep you updated with daily posts, experiments and case studies — the ideal way to improve your skills and stay updated.
