As we face what may be the most significant medical crisis of our times with the COVID-19 pandemic, we may be staring at yet another global recession. But in this grim scenario, data and analytics have emerged as a job saver for those entering the workforce and employees armed with experience.
With in-demand skills such as data science, robotic process automation and AI coming to the fore, the IT majors are re-evaluating the organization structure. Automation is lopping off lower-end jobs and projects have geared towards outcome-based results. According to a PwC report, organizations are putting their might behind Data Science, followed by Business Intelligence, Computer Vision, speech recognition among others.
Analytics India Magazine in association with Praxis Business School is organising a webinar to help you understand how the post COVID19 world is going to need more data scientists than ever before and how do you ensure you are one of them?
Webinar timing is 11 AM onwards on 04th April 2020 (Saturday)
