Spending on Big Data technologies and Analytics is growing at 30 per cent per annum as demand for data analytics skills continues to outstrip supply. In a 2013 survey carried out by SAP, three-quarters of firms report a lack of staff or graduates with data science skills. The finding from the survey of 300 businesses found that six out of ten companies last year had problems hiring personnel they needed for data analytics. Additionally, 84% of companies would like specific training to integrate analytics into their day-to-day work, as most businesses (92%) said that they had seen the amount of data grow in their organisations over the last 12 months. According to Richard Bruton, TD, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation “Big data is a sector which offers great potential for Ireland, and which we have targeted as part of our Action Plan for Jobs. In recent years, we have seen some major announcements in this sector.”
