The future of business depends on harnessing big data – in all its myriad unstructured formats and disparate sources – faster than the competition, and then using it to make better, more consistent and more fact-based decisions. But there’s a talent gap for data analysts with the specialized skills and broad-based knowledge to meet this growing demand. According to McKinsey Global Institute, the demand for deep analytical talent in the U.S. could be 50-60% greater than its projected supply by 2018.
