How to Prepare for The Tidal Wave of Big Data Jobs

Friday, March 13
2:00PM - 3:00PM

ACL Live at the Moody Theater
ACL Live
310 W 2nd St


According to the CDO Club, in 2014, there were an estimated 1,000 Chief Digital Officers and thousands of Data Scientists at companies worldwide – doubling the numbers since 2013. These new titles are only the beginning in a massive shift to accommodate the influx of big data. CDOs are found most frequently in the U.S., followed by the U.K., Australia and Spain (tied for third), France and Italy (tied for fourth), and then Germany. Much like the changing roles throughout the digital industry, with the introduction of social media platforms (i.e. the role of Social Media Manager isn’t even a decade old), the big data industry is creating new roles for both legacy brands and startups. Data experts will be a scarce, valuable commodity in the next decade and a huge opportunity for people with the right skill sets. In this session, you’ll hear from top industry executives, many of them Chief Digital Officers themselves, about how to navigate the new job landscape in the age of big data.
