Given the tremendous growth of digital data—and the desire of enterprises to derive more and more value from it—data analytics talent is in high demand worldwide. According to a report by McKinsey & Company, “By 2018, the United States alone could face a shortage of 140,000 to 190,000 people with deep analytical skills as well as 1.5 million managers and analysts with the know-how to use the analysis of big data to make effective decisions.”
