Nearly all businesses collect data about their operations and examine this data for insight into performance improvement. As the amount of business data becomes increasingly large, insights from the data can no longer be effectively derived manually. Skilled data analytics practitioners are needed to exploit the data’s potential and drive the improvements that keep companies competitive.
These critical situations have created an unprecedented opportunity for people seeking to transition to careers in cyber security and data analytics. Businesses need people who are ready to work on Day 1 – and they simply aren’t getting them.
The AIT Analytics Academy Data Analytics Program provides an immersive real- world experience using proven Story-Centered Curriculum and learning by doing designed by Learning Science pioneers.

Cybercrime will cost the world $6 trillion by 2021 – and there simply aren’t enough skilled cyber security professionals to counter the threat:
● “The Demand for [cybersecurity] workforce is expected to rise to 6 million [globally] by 2019, with a projected shortfall of 1.5 million.” – Michael Brown, CEO at Symantec.
● Cybersecurity Ventures forecasts that there will be 3.5 million unfilled positions by 2021.
● The unemployment rate for skilled professionals dropped to 0% in 2016 and is holding steady.
