As a BI analyst, I automate my own job every chance I get. Data, business requirements, and technology are constantly changing.

I spend half of my time maintaining, tweaking, and fixing automation jobs - these include dashboards, data sets, and database tables.

It requires a technical person who is also an expert in their business domain to translate business requirements into data or reports that others need.
