Big Challenges being addressed by this programme – motivation

Globally, there is a reported shortage of data analytics talent, particularly of individuals with the required deep technical and analytical skills. (1)

Accenture, Gartner and McKinsey have all identified Data Analytics as one of the fastest growing employment areas in computing and one most likely to make an impact in the future.

The Irish Government’s policy is for Ireland to become a leading country in Europe for big data and analytics, which would result in 21,000 potential new employment opportunities in Ireland alone. (1)

CNN has listed jobs in this area in their Top 10 best new jobs in America.
