Over the last decade there's been a massive explosion in both the data generated and retained by companies, as well as all of us. Sometimes we call this "big data". Data scientists are the people who make sense out of all this data and figure out just what can be done with it.

Big data and analytics courses have started making their way into the classroom only in the past couple of years and the number of job openings will certainly continue to outweigh the number of professionals with a sophisticated understanding of data and analysis to fill those openings over the next couple of years.

The demand for data scientists has pushed beyond large technology firms. Smaller organizations have realized that they too can use data to make better, more informed decisions. Sifting through that data to extract meaningful insights into their businesses can be a powerful competitive advantage nonetheless.

How to get into the field

The demand for data scientists is high, and professionals can enter the world of data science a number of ways. University programs are a good start, but a data science position often requires a mixture of skills that many schools are unable to package all together.

The Centre of Excellence in Mathematics, Office of Higher Education Commission, recognizes this demand and offers an opportunity to develop all of the necessary skills by your attending our SAS Data Science Academy's E-Learning Course, at the successful completion of which you will be awarded Big Data Certification and become a Big Data Certified Professional, recognized all over the globe, at a very much more affordable cost.
