Big Data and Your Career

Data is potential, and that data is accumulating. It's in the cloud, on your servers, in your data warehouse, on your laptop. Never before has data been so abundant, so accessible, yet so underutilized.

So how does this translate to your career? You'll remain marketable and competitive in the job market, accelerating your career path with in-demand skills. There are more jobs that require data analytics expertise than people to fill them—not just in Iowa, but also regionally and globally.
