Getting Ahead As A Specialist In Data Science

For professionals working in Data Science, the discipline is all about discovery, insights and innovation. Rapid advancements in the adoption of data and technologies, coupled with organisations feeling the strain of the mass of data they have, means that Data Scientists are in high demand. To stay ahead of the competition, companies must continuously look for unique ways to extract insights from the large volumes of data they acquire. This is where professionals from Data Science come in. Their skills lie in correlating data points, mapping out trends and identifying insights that support organisations to action change and/or enhance their growth. Now more than ever, due to the global pandemic, opportunities to move into a career in this space are vast. From Data Scientists, to Data Engineers and Heads of Analytics and Machine Learning, the possibilities for professionals in this discipline are limitless. Here are just a handful of the things you should know for a career in Data Science. Data Science is supporting the future According to the 2020 Emerging Jobs Report published by LinkedIn, the role of the Data Scientist continues to be an incredibly important one within data, analytics and technology. It also shows that, in our core markets, this position continues to be one of the top emerging roles: USA, it is thirdUK, it is seventhGermany, it is eighthFrance, it is tenth Data Science is a discipline that is growing. In the past year, we have seen these professionals demonstrate their ability to adapt into industries such as retail, banking and medicine, where we have seen such sharp change in consumer habits and a step up in global demand. They are all poised and ready to make use of Data Science functions and analytics. Take healthcare and medicine, for example. New collaborations, funding routes and systems for sharing data will shape research from now on. Data supports the way in which we interpret information and provides a means for us to make predictions, spot new trends and developments as well as better managing supply chains and organisational planning. Taking on a role as a Data Scientist or engineer will ultimately be a purpose-driven career, driving future innovations and making a range of business processes simpler and more effective. Professionals require an array of skills The way in which we have become connected today is ubiquitous. It is this level of connectivity that is having a direct impact on the way in which organisations operate (and how their consumers make use of services), due to the growing levels of data that are being collected and are then required to be interpreted and managed. Professionals working within the realms of Data Science need to keep this link in mind as their career and new project opportunities arise. Whilst it is crucial for these specialists to have unique skills such as Apache Spark, Data Science, Machine Learning and Python, they also need to have a clear understanding of statistics, hold business development skills and be clear communicators. Particularly of Data Scientists and engineers, it is imperative to really understand what the customer is looking for from the software, be able to handle multiple projects side-by-side and have excellent end-to-end experience across relevant frameworks. Professionals should take the time to bolster these skills, particularly for technical needs, by completing ongoing online courses, speaking to industry experts and staying updated with the latest iterations of programming and data languages. There are a range of career opportunities for skilled, savvy Data Science professionals with an interest in data and analytics on the table. The discipline is determined by technology and trends, making for a dynamic, rapidly developing industry that is growing at an unprecedented rate. Critically, as the industry continues to advance and demand for skilled professionals grows, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to make your mark. If you’re a Data Scientist looking to take a step up or are looking for the next member of your team, we can help.

Is Computer Vision at the Core of the New Normal?

Computer Vision is one of the fastest growing markets in Data & Analytics. While it was on a trajectory prior to the pandemic, the needs we have now have amped up the role Computer Vision plays in our day-to-day lives and businesses who want to keep up or get ahead are paying attention.  Unexpected Businesses Using Computer Vision Some unusual players leaning on these technologies are grocery stores. While some have pivoted to pickup and delivery, others have remained stagnant with yesterday’s shopping habits changed only to individuals in store wearing masks. For those who made the leap to the "new normal", they’re using things like shelf sensors and Machine Learning to automate ordering and determine best placement of a product. Though retail stores are no stranger to video analytics, the rise of Deep Learning and AI offer a more rapid analysis of video for real-time threat assessment. Teaching the machine to watch for crowding, erratic movement, or potential conflict allows for quick reaction or proactive measures to stop a conflict in play. Yet, behind all this Machine Learning and Computer Vision elements are people. Real live humans. And it’s their new normal which is a strong part of the world’s new normal as most everyone shifts and remains online, working remotely. Behaviours are changing and many businesses have differentiated themselves from others by staying ahead of the game.        Five Ways Businesses Are Moving Forward in the New Normal Remote work is here to stay. A jump of 18% of remote working after the pandemic is expected to remain key to many businesses. And nearly three quarters of executives, plan to increase their remote workers. Key components of this new change will be to bring onboard those with strong digital collaboration skills, ability to manage virtually, and reassess how goals and objectives are to be decided. How will businesses keep remote employees engaged, enthused, and feel part of the team when they could be miles or countries apart?Gig Workers as Cost-Saving Measure. As employees move out of office and online, gig workers are a go-to for businesses hoping to move forward and keep costs low. Performance management systems will need to be re-evaluated. After all, if the idea is to keep costs low (read: overhead), then how does the debate about whether or not to offer benefits fit in to the mix?Definitions are Changing. Whether the definition includes ‘critical skills,’ ‘critical role,’ or something similar. What these meant once are changing. Now, the focus is on how to encourage, mentor, or coach employees in professional development skills which can open up a variety of opportunities versus one set path to one set role.Keeping Track Virtually. Though most businesses tend to follow the model of ‘productivity and performance’ over simply hours worked, some organisations passively track their remote workforce. This keeping track can include timeclock software virtually managed to computer usage to monitoring communications. Several benefits of data tracking in this manner could be a boon to HR Managers as it could help to understand employee engagement. But it’s a fine line to traverse.Organisational Redesign Done with Efficiency in Mind. As everything from products to people move online, it’s more important than ever to ensure things like logistics, supply chains, and workflows are designed with efficiency in mind. Computer Vision AI models can help take these systems to the next level as things like grocery shopping, retail, and legacy businesses find their business must go online or pivot in the new normal to survive. In our recently released 2020 Salary Guide we discuss each specialism. What’s working. What isn’t. And how businesses can hire and retain top talent to keep their projects on track and their businesses running smoothly.If you’re interested in Data & Technology, Risk or Digital Analytics, Life Sciences Analytics, Marketing & Insight, or Data Science, check out our current opportunities.
