Abstract: MIT claims that 67% of companies see having analytics capabilities as a driver for their competitive advantage. However, according to TDWI, 46% of companies listed inadequate staffing or skills as the top barrier for realizing value from their data and analytics investments. What does it take to successfully position yourself for a career in big data and analytics in an organization? How do you identify the right employers who “get it” and will position you on a successful (and lucrative) job path? What are the other skills and leadership qualities required to be successful? Listen to a panel of industry experts answer these questions and more.
