Big data applications are commonplace -- most large companies have one or more of these applications, providing fast access to large stores of customer and sales data. As the IT organization grows to install, support and maintain these applications, new job categories and new tasks are added to the mix. These may include:
- big data hardware and software support;
- business analysts (using analytics to probe and explore the data); and
- managers who must supervise and prioritize job tasks.
The hardware/software support positions often center on the technical nature of Big Data. The emphasis of our program focuses on the analysts’ and managers’ roles regarding business management of big data.
