DATA & ANALYTICS
Talent Trends: South Africa, 2017
Data Science in South Africa
Big data remains a top priority for business as the quest to remain globally competitive heats up. As organisations begin to appreciate the opportunity to be found in analyzing the mountains of data they hold, the demand for big data expertise is growing daily. The number of people trained to analyse this data isn't growing in line with the demand, creating a challenge for companies looking to hire talented people.
It was for this reason that TSR was tasked to undertake a talent mapping project, in mid 2017, to assess the current status of Data Science skills within the two South African economic hubs - Cape Town and Johannesburg. In this paper we share the 5 key findings from our mapping exercise and share ideas on how organisations can apply this to their advantage.
