In the context of contemporary phase of convergent information and communication technologies (ICT) and burgeoning application of artificial intelligence, particularly in organising complex systems, new variants of knowledge such as analytics of big data and data science seem to generate exciting career opportunities in the labour market. Is something novel in this? For long people have been doing analytics; they have been designing, tabulating, presenting, drawing inferences, and predicting. Conventional statistical and econometric techniques such as regression often work well but there are issues unique to big datasets that may require different tools”.
Interestingly, there are three reasons for why analytics of big data is distinct from conventional approaches: volume of data, more potential predictors, and large data sets unravel complex non-linear patterns. Multi-lateral institutions like European Commission (EC) provides estimates of discernibly huge demand Big Data/Data Science/Analytics professions in United Kingdom. .Interestingly, some web contents foresees a bright scenario for Big Data/Data Science/Analytics professions in India; these contents provides anecdotal evidences and hunches to testify the potential of this sector as a bright spot in the future labour market. Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), being a public funded deemed university aspires to provide learners more inclusive opportunities in Analytics. Labour Market Research Facility (LMRF) at TISS shall be anchoring the programme Executive Postgraduate Diploma In Analytics.
