According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), the Global Datasphere is expected to grow from 33 Zettabytes in 2018 to 175 Zettabytes by 2025. In other words, if the entire Global Datasphere were stored on DVDs there would be a stack of DVDs circling Earth 222 times.
Data comes from a variety of sources, such as business transaction systems, customer databases, medical records, internet clickstream logs, mobile applications, social networks, scientific research repositories, machine-generated data and real-time data sensors used in internet of things (IoT) environments. The vast quantity of data has no value unless analyzed, making Data Analysts an important resource across all industries. Combining data with efficient and powerful analytics provides a tremendous boost to organizations by helping to find root causes of setbacks, uncover customer habits/behaviors, determine next steps to boost performance and more.
