Congratulations to our newest IIBA® Certifications recipient!
David Christy, ECBA, CBDA
David Christy accumulated 19 years experience at John Deere, with a strong emphasis in Business Analysis and Data Analytics for most of that career. Beginning as technical support for their proprietary, mainframe based purchasing system, he advanced with increasing responsibility. His most exciting achievement to date has been collaborating with IT and many business departments to create a self service real time data analytics environment leveraging the SAP HANA platform, which improved the work-life balance of thousands of employees around the world by affording them unprecedented access to their own data. Activities described in the BABOK were instrumental in the success of that project, along with many others.
David passed the IIBA® Entry Certificate in Business Analysis™ (ECBA™) exam on Wednesday, September 16, 2021. Then the IIBA® Certification in Business Data Analytics (IIBA®-CBDA) exam the next week on Wednesday, June 23, 2021. He took the CBDA Study Group provided by the Bluegrass IIBA Chapter earlier this month. David wanted to get the ECBA and CBDA Certifications both for professional validation of his past experience and to gain professional networking for future professional development.David lives in Hebron, KY with wife Dora Beth, and their four children. After a brief term of service at Answers in Genesis he is currently looking for where God wants to use his talents next. He is currently volunteering at a local clothing ministry and finding no organization is too small to put the BA and BDA concepts and practices to work. You may connect with David on LinkedIn, here.
