Mumbai: N. L. Dalmia envisions of empowering the future of the Indian Analytics Industry by kick-starting its School of Quantitative Science which offers Post-Graduate Programs in Big Data and Advanced Analytics in collaboration with one of the world’s largest Analytics Solution Provider – SAS Institute (India) Pvt. Ltd. The program is expected to commence from March 2018.
Dr. Raja Roy Choudhury – Director at N. L. Dalmia Institute of Management Studies & Research says, “Big Data is the new science which empowers the world.” Indeed, there’s no denying the fact that companies backed by strong Big Data capabilities are bound to dominate the markets in the near future. Artificial Intelligence, Mobile, Social Media and Internet of Things are driving data complexity in various forms and from a variety of sources. The importance of Big Data doesn’t revolve around how much data an organization has, but with what all they do with it.
The combination of Big Data with high-powered analytics enables managers to accomplish business related tasks that aim at cost/time reductions, optimized product offerings and majorly smart decision making. The use of advanced analytics techniques like text analytics, machine learning, predictive analytics, data mining, statistics, and natural language processing has empowered companies with the ability to make numerically backed and quicker decisions by using data which was previously inaccessible or unusable.
Today, data is omnipresent; almost 95% of the data that exists today has been created over the last 5 years. This figure itself demonstrates the humongous potential which can be unleashed by efficient processing of this data. The Big Data Industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 23.1% during 2016-2020. India currently contributes to 12 per cent of worldwide analytics and data science job openings, making it the largest analytics hub in the world, outside the US. But, as per TeamLease Services – A leading HR Services Agency, India will face a Demand-Supply gap of 2 Lakh Data Analytics Professionals by 2020.
