The current pace of data creation stands at 2.5 quintillion bytes being generated every single day. This is a staggering amount of data, and the most interesting part is that 90% of all the data available in the world right now has been generated just in the past two years. These vast amounts of data bring with them the challenge of making sense of all this information.
Organisations across the world are sitting on large troves of data that are ripe with insights. Companies need to mine this data to hold their competitive edge by improving efficiencies and finding new avenues to innovate. In the quest to leverage all this data, companies need qualified data scientists.
