The business world is just getting started with big data and business analytics. According to “The Quant Crunch,” a study performed by Burning Glass Technologies, Business-Higher Education Forum (BHEF), and IBM, by 2020 the number of Data Science and Analytics job listings is projected to grow by nearly 364,000 listings to approximately 2,720,000 (18%).
