Is KPMG Tax Ignition- Data Analyst the same as the rest of the big 4 tax tech. Do you guys do programming with Python, R, and SQL?

Depending on team, yes R and SQL can be used for dashboards as well as Power BI, but Python isn't used for client facing deliverables. A lot of the dashboards and solutions are just built in Excel. We do use Qlik and Tableau a ton in addition to Power BI. It's all over the place.

Probably not but never know. Seems like ignition is the hard tech stuff

Oh because I’m in FSO TTT. I have only really used SQL and VBA. Which part of TTT do you have to be in to use python and sql stuff

I have two friends who moved to Tax Ignition from EY TTT because KPMG promised to bump them to a higher level within 1 year (M1-> SM1, S2 -> M1). They told me the work is the same.

Oh yes I am apart of Nicole’s Team. Is there a possibility to be apart of the advanced technology team or do you need an actual comp sci degree or heavy background to be apart of the group?

Networking question here. A retired partner at the firm I used to work out reached out to me recently about attending an afternoon during the week (b4 4/30) with one of his long time clients.

Torn as how to request off as an S3. Could materialize to nothing but could be good for reconnecting.
