It’s a great time to work in the analytics field. Glassdoor has named “data scientist” as the number one job position in the US for four years in a row and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the rapid evolution of data science will create 11.5M job openings by 2026.
Masses of fresh data fuel the major shift in the analytics industry that has ushered in so many job openings. On average, 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created each day. The sheer amount of data that exists calls for an effective method for how it can be shared, processed, and analyzed. This is where new and advanced cloud solutions take effect. Cloud platforms have made some of the most influential developments to the data industry and have used the technology to overcome previous setbacks in the field. They’ve even created a new set of expectations and standards that need to be met for security, efficiency, and connectivity.
Though the major companies operating within the cloud have been able to take leaps in the direction of revolutionized computing, dozens of smaller companies still utilize their own transaction systems, data lakes, data warehouses, and the like. Many are hesitant to make the switch because they don’t know how or are comfortable with their current systems; however, by not using new technologies, they’re missing out on opportunities that could bring their company to the next level. They aren’t allowing their data officers to reach their position’s full potential.
How can their companies get to the point where advancements in data seem more accessible? It’s all about perspective and strategy.
The very first step towards welcoming in these big changes in business is acknowledging that there’s more that can be done. Cloud, in addition to dozens of other advancements in the field of Big Data, grants the opportunity to improve companies’ infrastructure, training routine, management, internal communication, and more. Once they commit to making improvements, data scientists need to set a cultural standard of supporting an analytics strategy aligned with that of their digitally transformed business strategy. That way, analytics can introduce the solutions that are best suited for your company’s needs, one step at a time.
