– There was a 15,000% increase in job postings for data scientists between summer 2011 and summer 2012, which spanned across all industries including retail, banking, healthcare and airlines.
– The average salary of a data scientist is over $100K.
– Experts predict that 1.5 million more data-literate managers will be needed by 2018.
