New Momentum for Analytics Training, Upskilling
According to a Business Higher Education Forum (BHEF) and Gallup report, 59% of employers say that this year, analytics and data science skills will be required of all their finance and accounting managers; 51% said they will be required of all marketing and sales managers; 49% said they will be required of all executive leaders; and 48% said they will be required of all operations managers. With an increased focus on data-driven decision making, enterprise organizations should plan not only for recruiting and retaining data and analytics talent, but also educating, reskilling, and upskilling current employees.
Employees want this too. In a recent Covid-19 business impact survey conducted by MicroStrategy, more than half (54%) of the analytics and BI professionals responding say they now have a personal focus on improving their work-related skills or learning new ones.
In fact, to meet the critical need for more upskilling and training, MicroStrategy Education quickly helped more than 20,000 members of our analytics community acquire valuable training and certifications on MicroStrategy 2020 in the past few months. Our Education program was available for free to all, and it received an extraordinary response from students looking to expand data literacy, upskill workers adversely impacted by Covid-19, and educate a new wave of novice analysts, up through the most experienced Intelligence Center architects to thrive in the data economy. MicroStrategy’s program of continuous training and certification designed for the essential roles in an organization’s Intelligent Enterprise—combined with the new Expert.Now offering—gives employees the added confidence that they’re delivering the best for their organization.
