The Growing Need for Data Scientists

In just one-year job listings for “data scientist” increased by an incredible 15,000% between 2011 and 2012. The need for data scientists is expected to continue to grow as more and more data is created each day.

In 2013 IBM reported that between 2011-2013 90% of the world’s data had been created just in the two years prior to that. And now it is estimated that in the next 5 years 175 billion terabytes of data will be created every day. By 2020 there will be over 2.7 million data scientist job openings to take on this massive growth.
