In Demand: Business Intelligence and Data Skills

Graduates with data analysis and business intelligence skills are in short supply as the demand is projected to increase. 
According to Teradata, "The need for highly skilled BI workers by 2018 in the US alone is projected to exceed available workforce by as much as 60 percent, according to a McKinsey Global Institute report in May. That report projects that by 2018 an additional 190,000 “deep analytical talent” workers plus 1.5 million more “data-savvy managers and analysts” will be needed to take full advantage of big data in the US alone."
