Data Skills needed within the Analytics industry
After reading a very interesting report regarding severe shortage of DATA TALENT in the UK market. A range of numerous companies have been interviewed to see what skills are in demand regardless of experience. Many interviewees answered regardless of an individual’s data mode, they are looking for analysts with a data scientist profile, including a mix of analytical and coding skills, and creativity and business know-how.
