It's estimated that 2.5 Quintillion bytes of data are created every day (IBM). As more data is being collected on where and how we click, email, chat, or capture photos, professionals are needed that can turn that data into useful insights.
It’s clear that companies view
data as a critical corporate asset and need to transform their data into information
that will help them make smarter business decisions and drive growth.
fastest-growing roles are Data Scientists and Advanced Analysts, which are
projected to see demand spike by 28% by 2020 (Forbes). And as the demand steadily increases and the talent supply
remains low, data analytics professionals are getting paid more and more. In
addition, big data professionals have a huge influence on company policies and
marketing strategies. They’re becoming leaders.
analytics skills provide the perfect opportunity to become a well-paid freelancer
or consultant for some of the biggest firms in the world. And it can be done
from anywhere; you don’t have to be tied to a desk.
