Big data is a field whose time is coming quickly. While there’s a lot of hype around the possibilities of  capturing and analyzing data, there are also tremendous challenges. But organizations that get it right to shave time off production processes, or figure out exactly the right offers to entice customers with, or where to invest next will reap tremendous competitive advantages.

What does this mean for you? Big data training and certifications can help prepare you for a field with a lot of demand and not much supply, and a career that will likely see nothing but growth for awhile.

While many data science positions call for degrees in math or related fields, there are several related positions that also earn big money, get you in involved in leading-edge projects and don’t necessarily require a background in algorithms.
