An assessment of demand for labour and skills,
This report, issued in January 2013, was produced by e-skills UK on behalf of SAS UK.
The report aims to provide an understanding of the developing demand trends for big data related staff in the UK, focusing in particular on demand arising within the IT function of UK businesses.
The report shows that IT employment as a whole is set to grow by 2.5% a year over the next five years, more than three times the rate predicted for UK employment as a whole. Over the same period, the report predicts that demand for big data staff will rise even more rapidly - with the growth rate forecast at 18% per annum, by 2017 there will be at least 28,000 openings for big data staff in the UK each year.
The report also provides a detailed analysis of recent demand trends for big data staff and examines the core occupations and skills currently needed by UK employers implementing big data projects. These include Hadoop, NoSQL, Oracle, Java and SQL.
