Data skills to drive productivity, innovation and growth

Empower your team with data analytics training to unleash your business’s full potential   

What’s the cost of doing nothing?

  • 70% of employees are expected to work heavily with data by 2025¹. 
  • But only 40% of employees say they are being provided with the data skills their employers expect². 

A pronounced skills gap is just around the corner – and organisations need to act quickly or risk falling behind.

Unleash the power of Data Analytics for better business decisions

Data analytics involves working with data to gain insights and reveal trends that would otherwise remain buried in a mass of data. This process helps businesses make better strategic decisions.

Organisations that make fast data-driven decisions understand their customers best, innovate to drive growth and sense markets more quickly and clearly than their competitors.

Although data is the fuel that drives the fourth industrial revolution, many organisations are yet to harness its power to improve decision-making and advance enterprise goals. According to a recent Sigma study, companies analyse just 12% of their data, leaving 88% untapped.

Empowering employees by raising data skills is crucial in order for businesses to transform. To harness data, companies must scale organisation-wide upskilling solutions to instill a true data culture.

Is Data and Analytics a skill that is here for the long run? How does it map against the World Economic Forum’s Top Ten Work Skills for 2025?

The skills needed to work with data closely mirror many of the abilities the World Economic Forum outlines in their Top Ten Work Skills for 2025 list. This list maps the jobs and skills of the future.

These include: Analytical thinking & innovation (#1); Complex problem-solving (#3); Critical thinking and analysis; Reasoning, problem-solving and ideation (#10).

Data science vs data analytics - what’s the difference?

While data analysis and data science both involve working with data, the main difference is what each discipline does with that data.

Where data science is more technical (data modelling, algorithms, predictive models etc.), data analysis involves identifying trends, developing charts, and creating visual presentations to help businesses make more strategic decisions.
