If it’s possible to jump out of a closet you where never in, then now is the time for Data Insights. By virtually any metric, the number of job postings in the Analytics space has more than doubled over the past 3 years. There are currently over 60K active job postings for Data Insights and Analytics related positions; dispelling the myth surrounding its importance in the marketplace. The numbers don’t lie.
It’s okay guys, companies are no longer looking at analytics professionals as glorified accountants with a personality akin to bean counters. We can let that white board algorithm shine bright. This work takes passion and vision. As daunting as our work may appear to others, truly successful firms are relying on die hard Data Insights experts to drive their core business strategy. The competition smells a change in the wind and are setting their sails to emulate the data driven success of their peers. Data Insights is no longer an empty term Execs toss around in the board room, it’s a philosophy curated and maintained from the top down for a profitable bottom line.
