Why Data Analytics?

The world needs a lot more Data analysts than ever before.

Data analytics techniques enable a business to take raw data and uncover patterns to extract valuable insights. As a result, data analysis helps companies make informed decisions, create a more effective marketing strategy, improve customer experience, and streamline operations, among many other things. As technology continues to boom, more data is being generated and definitely is also a need for people who will analyze the data. Data has become the most important factor in business success, hence the saying, Data is the new oil.

Paying or not?

Data Analytics is a highly rewarding career

The demand for data specialists is on the rise while the supply remains low, thus creating great job opportunities for individuals within this field. 

Today, it is almost impossible to find any brand that does not have a social media presence; soon, every company will need data analytics professionals. This makes it a wise career move that has a future in business. 

According to Prospects, entry level salaries for data analytics professionals range between £24,000 and £25,000. With a few years’ experience, salaries can rise to somewhere between £30,000 and £35,000, while high-level professionals and consultants may earn £60,000 or more.

That said, with proper education, like the one this course offers, you can transition into Data Analytics in a few months and land your first job in the next 4 – 6 months.
