Personally I would say:
-Good relationship and communication skills.
As with any business role, keeping your customer happy (be they internal or external) is paramount.
Being able to manage your own workload and prioritise is essential
-Being above average computer literate
Data analysts will need to use a multitude of applications and understand the differences between them. Business Objects, SAS, MS Access, MS Excel, SQL Server, Oracle server to name a few.
