Remember back in January when we did a quick spotlight on why IT pros should dip their feet into the big data waters? We remember—and we weren’t joking around. The technological world around us is learning, automating and becoming more efficient. And it’s happening fast. Most IT leaders expect to take action and implement big data, AI, automation and machine learning initiatives in the next 12-24 months, according to our IT Forecast polling.
If you’ve ever mulled over the idea of pursuing an IT career around data, the time to execute your plan is now (dun dun dun). Consider using your partnership with TEKsystems to familiarize yourself with the big data solutions on Google Cloud Platform.
The skills you’ll learn while going through these courses (think: analyze data, batch and stream data processing, orchestrate workflows, and tell stories from data to inform business outcomes) is, with apologies to MasterCard, priceless. Companies in every industry are in the market for these data engineering skills to help execute programs and gain business insights.
It’s probably not a coincidence that Skillsoft has just released a brand-new training to start you on the path of becoming a certified Google Data Engineer on the Google Cloud Platform.
