‘Need for data scientists to grow’

Experts counsel new sectors would require individuals who can analyse information in post-Covid period

Hyderabad: In the post-Covid world the demand for information scientists and analysts is about to develop. According to consultants, not simply conventional sectors like info expertise (IT) and banking will demand information scientists, however even unconventional industries like retail, healthcare, manufacturing, scientific analysis, auto and even agriculture would require individuals who can analyse information effectively and successfully.

“In the post-Covid world where people are engaging more digitally, data will surely become the need of the hour for every industry and sector. In the past, IT and BFSI were the only two sectors where data was used but now as more and more people get online the more and more data analysis will be required. So, while the two traditional sectors will surely constitute 60 per cent of the need, there is a growing demand for data analysts and scientists in other sectors as well,” mentioned Dr Santanu Paul, co-founder and CEO, TalentSprint.

The deep tech studying platform TalentSprint has partnered with Indian Institute of Science (IISc) to launch 5 govt studying programmes within the subsequent two years. These programmes, in response to Paul, shall be within the deep tech house and can think about areas of information science and machine studying. While they’ve already launched a programme within the healthcare house, each the entities have now launched an Advanced Programme in Computational Data Science.

“There is a widening gap between demand and supply of data scientists and as technology progresses, this gap is set to widen even more. In such a scenario, executive learning programmes are needed the most along with traditional academic courses for graduate and under-graduate students,” mentioned Dr Sashikumaar Ganesan, Head of the Department of Computational and Data Sciences (CDS) at IISc.

The 10-month programme will educate present and aspiring information architects and information scientists core abilities wanted to design, construct and deploy options for data-driven enterprise choices. The first cohort of the programme, which is able to begin in January 2021, is open to prime 50 professionals from India, APAC and Middle-East.
