Six Ways to Manage the Data Deluge

The data revolution is here. Every smartphone, bar code scan, satellite, even Uber ride creates a flood of data that can be analyzed for patterns and insights. According to the World Economic Forum, the entire digital universe will soon reach 44 zettabytes—the equivalent of 44 sextillion bytes.

This data deluge has created a demand for analysts who have the knowledge and skills to discern impactful data vs. superfluous information. On a given day, there are more than 19,000 full-time jobs in data science listed on Indeed.com. And according to LinkedIn, “data science specialist” is one of the fastest-growing jobs.
