/ Infographic: The World Needs Data Scientists

Every organization has at least two kinds of data consumers: the first is the executive or business leader who needs quick insights on reliable metrics, so they can make faster decisions. The second is the data scientist and analyst who looks for the stories and connections within the data that no one else can see.

Between the years 2011 and 2012, FICO reported a 15,000% increase in job postings for data scientists. In 2013, there were no fewer than 140,000 open positions for data scientists. In addition to the 140,000 to 190,000 data scientists needed to fill open positions, the market will need 1.5 million data-literate managers to be trained or hired to scale with the growth.

With so much activity going on in the big data space and new data touch points being measured every day, there will be an increasing need for data-driven individuals within organizations to make sense of it all.
