Professionals who know how to leverage Big Data for real-time decisions.

Big Data analytics are increasingly becoming a critical component of companies’ go-to-market strategies — targeted marketing, customer retention, and other customer-centric services. With ready access to mega data centers and the capability to leverage the power of cloud talent computing for Big Data, companies large and small are competing on what is increasingly a level playing field. This is creating intense demand for professionals who possess the demonstrated ability to drive new business initiatives and link enterprise data knowledge to the core business. Leaders who can leverage Big Data for real-time decisions must be learning agile and highly adept at managing change as well as able to see trends, think strategically, bring breakthrough ideas to market, and handle ambiguity.
