Data is everywhere, but what we do with it is all that matters. This is why Data Analytics is in the frontiers of IT. Data Analytics has become crucial as it improves business and decision making; and it provides an edge over the competitors.
If you are thinking about a career in Data Analytics, here are 3 reasons you should go for it.
1. Soaring Demand for Analytics Professionals
Jeanne Harris, senior executive at Accenture Institute for High Performance, has stressed the significance of analytics professionals by saying: “…data is useless without the skill to analyze it.” There are more job opportunities in Big Data management and Analytics than there were last year and many IT professionals are prepared to invest time and money for the training.
2. Huge Job Opportunities & Meeting the Skill Gap
The demand for Analytics skills is going up steadily, but there is a huge deficit on the supply side. This is happening globally and is not restricted to any part of geography. In spite of Big Data Analytics being a ‘Hot’ job, there is still a large number of unfilled jobs across the globe due to shortage of required skill. A McKinsey Global Institute study states that the US will face a shortage of about 190,000 data scientists and 1.5 million managers and analysts who can understand and make decisions using Big Data by 2018.
3. Salary Aspects
Strong demand for Data Analytics skills is boosting the wages for qualified professionals and making Big Data pay big bucks for the right skill. This phenomenon is being seen globally.
According to Indeed.com, the average Data Analyst salary in Ireland is €45,880 per year.
