Data is an essential part of our lives, and Business intelligence (BI), analytics and big data are becoming increasingly vital to organisations wishing to examine customer behaviour or make forward-planning decisions.
Put simply, BI is the transformation of raw data into information that can easily be understood. For example, a manager looking at data in its raw form may just see a set of numbers, but a BI analyst can look at data sets and translate these to managers. Analytics allow users to visualise data, using graphs, charts and other tools. Perhaps the easiest way to explain this area is that it’s BI on a much larger scale and can collect data as it’s actually happening, rather than retrospectively.
BI is used across many organisations, agencies and sectors – from banking and insurance to the government and the NHS – to analyse trends and move forward. The typical kinds of roles Capita IT Resourcing recruit for in these sectors are consultants (both technical and functional), analysts, database architects, data scientists, BI developers, architects and managers. These jobs can be both contract and permanent.
Capita IT Resourcing’s consultants recruiting in BI, big data and analytics are specialists and research their markets thoroughly, amassing knowledge through both reading and asking candidates about their skillsets and the tools they use in different projects.
Our consultants know that the current market is job-led; at the moment there are fewer candidates out there than there are roles. All these types of roles require specialist candidates too, and right now there’s a shortage of people with the right skillset. Jobs can be snapped up quickly, so our consultants create strategies and methodologies to help clients ensure they don’t miss out on the right candidate to meet their needs.
