I already have 5 years of experience in a non-analytics field. Does it make sense for me to make a career shift into analytics at this stage?

Even if you are from a non-analytical background, making a switch to analytics can be a rewarding one in the long run. The starting salaries in analytics range from 4 to 7 lacs and the career growth is pretty fast in this field. Further the experience of dealing with and analyzing  information to influence strategy will prepare you for management roles down the line in your career.

Additionally, if you are from an industry like financial services, telecom, retail, health care or any of the other analytics-dominated industries, your business experience will provide an advantage in an analytics role too.

Of course @Ali, it makes sense to shift, you'll probably have a brighter future, earn more, grow more if you pursue data analytics. Also data analytics is all about your analytical skills, the only thing you might struggle with is learning new tools.

All the best
