Aryng (A-ring) announces analytics workshop for business professionals to be held in San Francisco, February 22-24, 2012. This unique workshop directly addresses the current analytics talent gap in the US job market.
Today all leading organizations are rapidly gaining power by leveraging data to gain insights and drive business decisions. Predictive Analytics is a powerful statistical technique by which data from past behavior is analyzed to make predictions about future. Business Analytics on the other hand, comprises of simpler analytics techniques to evaluate business performance.
Although analytics as a function is quickly becoming core to business, there appears to be a huge gap in analytical talent. A recent study by Accenture published a few weeks ago, found the top in-demand skill gap for US Workers as problem solving, analytical skills and managerial skills. Another source of truth, McKinsey Global Institute's report on Big Data predicts shortage of 1.5mm analysts/managers who can make data driven decisions (by 2018, in the US).
On the other side, universities are starting to offer degree in Analytics. North Carolina State University and Northwestern University are two of the well-known universities that have started Master’s degree in Analytics. Stanford and many other universities offer professional development courses through their statistics and data mining departments. But these programs tend to be somewhat academic and more appropriate for professionals looking to get into data scientist or advance analytics roles.
There is still a big gap in truly making analytics accessible to business professionals who are already in the job and are making decisions that can be improved by using analytics. For these busy professionals, there needs to be shorter analytics training with a focus on business.
