IAPA promotes the growing strategic role played by data analytics in the business arena. IAPA is committed to aiding executive understanding of analytics role in business transformation and data-driven decision making; as well as developing recognition of analytics professionals in the wider business community. This includes establishing standards of practice, excellence, accreditation and education. IAPA also assists and supports organisations to find and retain staff, build high-performance teams, develop staff skills and enhance the perception of key analytics roles with the C-suite.

​Analytics Credentials Framework

Additionally, IAPA has introduced an analytics credential in conjunction with DeakinDigital and ADMA IQ that is available to all IAPA paid members. Built around skills and competencies, analytics professionals and practitioners can now gain an industry-recognised credential that attests to their level of analytics expertise. In this way the credential recognises skill whether it be gained via experience or education.
