“Josette Rigsby reports that a recent Jaspersoft study supports the general consensus that there is currently a major lack of skilled Data Scientists. She writes, “Business intelligence platform provider Jaspersoft has released a new survey that examines how companies across the globe are using big data analytics. Although many studies indicate the challenge of managing rapidly growing data volumes paralyzes many companies into inaction, Jaspersoft’s research tells a different story. The data shows 62 percent of respondents plan to implement big data solutions in the next twelve months. Jaspersoft’s new big data survey includes 631 respondents from the company’s user community. The survey includes respondents from more than fifteen countries that are primarily employed by companies with less than US$ 10M in revenue (30 percent).”” - New Study Shows Lack of Big Data Skills - semanticweb.com
