Big data in business

“Today’s employers are looking for someone who is business ready; someone that has the skillset to tackle the large data set that we’re confronted with today. My area of research is risk management, especially efficient capital allocation – how much money should you put away for a rainy day; whether it be too much and you’re being inefficient, or too little, and you’re being caught out. So I’m trying to find just the right amount, and back it up with the data.”

One of the most significant developments associated with the digital revolution is the increased availability of data.

For leaders in contemporary organisations, the ability to effectively analyse and draw useful inferences from data is critical, and professionals are playing an increasingly important role in enabling organisations to meet their strategic goals and drive business innovation.

Organisations are looking for employees with the technical and analytical skills to leverage business intelligence effectively.
