Data Scientists are the need of the hour!

Over the last few years, opportunity in the field of Data Science has exploded as a result of the magnitude of data generated in the world every day. The amount of data we generated as a total in 2003 is what we now generate nearly every 2 days! At this rate, it is predicted that by 2020 the amount of data generated will grow by roughly 50X. To give you an idea, that’s about 5,000 times the estimated information content of all human knowledge – also equal to the amount of data your DNA holds!

With this kind of structured, unstructured and semi-structured data flowing in each day, businesses are facing an acute shortage of data scientists to refine, process and analyze this data to derive actionable insights.

While traditional IT jobs are going through a rough patch, new-age technology jobs are in demand. Young talent skilled in Data Science, Machine Learning, Big Data and Deep Learning are among the most sought after by top MNCs.  

In fact, according to a recent study by Edvancer and Analytics India Magazine, the number of new analytics jobs advertised per month increased by almost 76% from April 2017 to April 2018.
