This paper applies text mining and data mining techniques to analyse online job advertisements related to Business Intelligence (BI) in web portals around the ASEAN region. Several techniques are applied: data preprocessing, tokenization, association rules (AR) with FP-Growth and visualisation. The research goal is the profiles of BI skills required for industry and the market. The results would be useful for individual to prepare for their BI competence, for faculties to prepare for BI-related courses and curriculum, and for organizations to prepare for Human Resource (HR) and job advertisement purposes.
