The pandemic pushed data further into the spotlight — and it’s going to stay there.

The demand for data science skills and data-driven decision making has been rapidly accelerating for years. Now, organizations across industries are putting professionals to the test to understand and respond to the drastic shift in business operations and consumer behavior caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In a world that’s constantly changing, it’s normal to feel like you don’t have control over what happens next. One thing you can control? Your education. With modular, flexible learning opportunities on this Platform, it’s easy to gain the tangible skills and knowledge you need on your own time and at your own pace.

Analytics and data science have become “essential navigational tools” as businesses respond to the uncharted waters of a pandemic-disrupted economy and prepare for the future. 

As an increasing range of professionals are leveraging data skills to ask questions and explore problems, the types of job functions and industries that use data will only continue to grow.

Opportunities for Impact

There’s a renewed, critical need to untangle, rework, and leverage data to understand new business challenges and find paths forward

Over the past decade, the availability of data and demand for analytics and data science skills has skyrocketed. 

In the sudden, unpredictable market sparked by the pandemic, the data and models companies relied on to inform strategy and decision making have been turned upside down. 

From the race to invest in real-time visualization and reporting capabilities to weather today’s storm to continued focus on building resilient, data-driven organizations, the spotlight on the power and potential of data science and analysis skills has never been brighter.
