Why Big Data?


"The demand for  Big Data professionals globally by 2015 would be about 4.4 million."

Peter Sondergaard, Senior Vice President and Global Head of Research at Gartner 

Tech Target 

"There is going to be an estimated shortfall of 190,000 data scientists in India within the next couple of years."

Tech Target - "IT trends in India: Investing in big data technology"
