Growing Skills Gap Taking a Toll on Data Management Strategies

An escalating skills gap is preventing business decision-makers from asking the right questions of data and machines, according to a recent report from data analytics company Qlik. As part of the study, research firm Censuswide surveyed 7,377 business decision-makers worldwide between August 2017 and February 2018 on behalf of Qlik, and found that nearly half (48 percent) struggle to identify between data truths and manipulations. This indicates an urgent need to upskill and support workers, the report said.
