 A recent report from McKinsey predicted that there will be a shortage of talent necessary for organizations to take advantage of big data. The United States alone faces a shortage of 140,000 to 190,000 people with deep analytical skills by 2018, and a shortage of as much as 1.5 million managers and analysts to analyze big data and make decisions based on their findings. Learn how system integrators are planning to help enterprises close the predicted gap between supply and demand.
