How to Get a Hot Job in Big Data

Network World (03/19/12) Dan Tynan

Big data has spawned new hybrid jobs that combine business knowledge and information technology tools. “Marketing and research people are becoming adept at pulling data from one system, translating it, and loading it into another system,” says Michael Dsupin, chief executive of the tech staffing firm Talener. “Everything these days is about harvesting the data out there.” Tracey Wilen-Daugenti, managing director of the Apollo Research Institute, says toolmaking, auto repair, health care, and other industries are being changed by technology, noting, “Every industry will require smart technology people with subject-matter expertise who can create new devices and think through all ways they might be used.” Some of these hybrid jobs involve data mining, data visualization, data analysis, data manipulation, data discovery, and handling data deluge. However, Dsupin does not think IT workers will be replaced.
