Your core set of skills is what makes you valuable as an employee. The type of value you bring to a company is directly connected to the length, direction, and prosperity of your career. This makes the task of upskilling yourself of paramount importance. Furthermore, you must choose which set of skills that are in the highest demand. This week, we will talk about Big Data Analytics. A knowledge base that is not only in high demand, but is currently in the center of a once in a lifetime technology shift.
Big data is everywhere. It’s the trendy buzzword being used to describe the millions of terabytes of data being submitted and transferred across the web. Data such as visitor information, purchasing trends, browsing habits, shopping preferences, and more is being collected at record rates. This mass collection and usage of data is a once in a lifetime event in technology. However, all this data is completely useless without trained professionals to properly analyze it. This landmark event and corresponding consequence have resulted in a high demand for data analytics professionals.
“Sooner or later, this will be a must required skill to find a job. Companies have already started the shift with most of them completing the pilot phase and are currently in operational mode.” says. Deepa Sukumaran, Head of Program Management and Operations at Sollers College. Leading IT companies are quickly coming to the realization that they are in the middle of a major technological shift and must anticipate future hiring needs. The data backs up this claim. In a study by QuinStreet Inc., it was found that the trend of implementing Big Data Analytics has greatly increased and has been made a high priority among U.S. businesses. A majority of these companies are currently implementing it or or are planning to do so within the next two years.
However, deciding that Big Data is going to be your next career move is not enough. It is imperative you enroll yourself in an institution that is teaching the core skills and concepts. “Any student who decides to get certified at Sollers College can be assured they are being taught the skills that employers are looking for.” added Deepa. “Our program teaches our students key tools such as Spark, Hadoop, Hive, HBase, and Pig. Our industry trained faculty will guide our students through several hands on projects that allow them to hone their skills.”
Big Data is the future. If you are an IT professional, you are lucky enough to be working during a major shift in the history of your industry. This skill is only going to increase in value and it appears that all IT professional will be required to have it sooner or later. The time is now to become certified in Big Data Analytics and be prepared for the jobs of the future.
