Data warehouse jobs are growing in India as the government’s IT policy drives companies to hire data scientists, IT experts and engineers.
Data warehouse jobs can pay up to Rs 1 crore a month.
The demand for data scientists is rising as a key factor in the rapid rise of companies like Amazon and Flipkart, which have grown their business with online sales.
Data science is a critical skill for startups to develop and gain traction in the market, according to Gaurav Kale, founder and CEO of DataGuru, a data analytics company.
Kale says data science is not as well known as business intelligence, a term he coined to describe the skills and skillsets that companies need to be successful in the data analytics field.
Data analytics, the study of data, is also not as widely known in India, Kale said.
« Companies have to hire a data scientist to develop a business model, develop analytics, and build a data science model.
So data analytics is more of a niche field.
Data is king.
There are few opportunities for data.
There is a lot of money to be made in data. »
Data warehouse work is a lucrative profession in India.
The government has set up a pilot program to create jobs in data warehouses and the jobs will be available from July 2017.
Data warehouse workers in India earn between Rs 1 lakh and Rs 3 crore per month.
