Our IT systems and devices are constantly creating data and the amount of data created and stored grows exponentially. Data, and in particular patterns and trends within data, have the ability to inform and provide valuable insights, that help us predict and diagnose specific outcomes. Whilst the amount of data grows, the science of gaining insights from this data grows with it. Industry, research institutions and government all seek to extract value from data to improve products and services, serve their customers better and run more operationally efficient organisations.
Specialists in Business Intelligence use their mathematical, computational and presentational skills to mine data from enterprise information systems and elsewhere for value and their skills are highly sort after. There is a significant shortage of skilled Business Intelligence specialists and so there are many job opportunities available.
