Data & Business Intelligence market overview

Companies are transitioning to more proof-driven strategies for analysis and growth, and many are implementing business intelligence (BI) solutions to ensure they get added value from their data analysis.

New BI tools continue to emerge allowing analysis of data on a larger scale and helping streamline decision-making processes. Due to this, many employers are looking to increase their BI team size which is further highlighting the evident skills shortage of experienced professionals in the field.


This has caused an increased workload for BI professionals with experience in customer analytics, data visualisation, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and data science. Professionals with experience in big data and cloud computing software, especially AWS and Azure, are also experiencing spikes in workload. Successful candidates will need to know how to use the newest BI systems on the market including Looker, Domo and Cluvio, to set themselves apart from competition.
