The creation and consumption of data continues to grow by ginormous amounts. Because money follows ingenuity, the investment in big data analytics hardware, software, and services and in data scientists and their continuing education is also growing. DATAVERSITY brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “The Evolution of Data Preparation and Data Analytics.”

Professionals are predicting a seismic change in the data analysis market. Evolution from the self-service data preparation and analytics to a governed, collaborative enterprise data intelligence platform should result in improved business operations and processes.

There is also an increasing interest and investment in artificial intelligence (AI) that will lead to the emergence of new tools for collecting and analyzing data and new enterprise roles and responsibilities.

The best jobs right now in America include titles like data scientist, data engineer, and business analyst. That should give us some clue as to what the future holds.
