Welcome to your quarterly update on the Analytics market, where we provide you with insights from the previous and upcoming quarters.
What were the market trends for last quarter?
Currently businesses are putting a heavy focus on Data Governance, with data quality and privacy being one of the most talked about things this year. The market is also pretty small in Data Governance, making top talent hot property.
What are the major skills in demand?
The major skills in demand largely remain the same. From a technical stand point tools like R, Python, SQL and Data Visualisation tools are all important, but they also need to be mixed with strong soft skills.
What are the skill gap shortages?
There is need for strong business facing Data Analysts - being able to translate data into a narrative for senior stakeholders is still one of the most desirable skill sets in Q4.
What is the outlook for the next quarter?
We expect to see a slow start to next year with the market picking up towards the end of January. However with the new year comes new projects, budgets and a renewed energy after the long break, so keep an eye on the job market as things tend to get very busy across February and March.
