Cramming for BI Jobs

Here is the link to a short article Cramming for BI Jobs from Information Management (you might need subscription to read it).

According to the article, of the 125 colleges surveyed, only three had an analytics or BI undergraduate program, and 12 had those BI or analytics programs for graduate degrees. As a result, there is a shortage of up to 1.5 million knowledge workers prepared to work on BI and trends (of big data) coming out of colleges.

What are the obstacles? According to the article:

  • Obstacles are from both academia and the industry, and
  • Lack of cooperation across faculty in business and IT programs and
  • Absence of understanding from administration as well as
  • Unwillingness of industry leaders to volunteer and share information that can be highly guarded, like large data sets and case studies
