IDC, global provider of market intelligence, forecasts a ten-fold increase in worldwide data by 2025. That said, data literacy is a required skill for the 21st century workplace. It is the ability to read, work with, analyze and communicate with data that empowers all workers at all levels in the organization to ask the right questions of data and machines, build knowledge, make decisions, and communicate meaning to others.

Complementing this fundamental shift to a technology-oriented workplace, the demand for careers in UX/UI design and software development are also expected to increase.
