In 2014 one of the most important and widely issues in the data community was the skills gap, or lack thereof.
Surveys have shown that companies are struggling to find the talent required to overcome their data science shortfalls. This is unsurprising given that according to HBR, 85% of companies are planning on implementing a data science programme in the next 5 years.
The Big Data Channel at Innovation Enterprise, well known for the Big Data Innovation Summit Series, will host DataTalent15 at their annual flagship event in San Jose on April 28 & 29.
DataTalent15 will offer a platform for those looking to get hired and those hiring in the data space, with an attendance exceeding 800, DataTalent15 offers the perfect pedestal to those wanting to be noticed by companies or companies looking to employ the best talent.
We have some incredible attendees from the companies like Facebook, LinkedIn, Starbucks, eBay, Google, Mashable & many more.
If you’re looking to hire in the space then please contact: Chris Towers.
