Today’s market requires skills in big data technologies, advanced statistics, machine learning, data security, cloud application development, and innovative thinking. From ordering food to entertainment to autonomous vehicles, each of us will be engulfed by more data than we are neurologically equipped to handle. The scale and ubiquity of data are already forcing corporations to find ingenious ways to analyze, track, and leverage data for strategy, and operations.

As data volumes continue to explode, businesses need to continually upgrade the education and skill level of their employees to fully utilize the power of data for a competitive edge in the market.
