Career opportunities:

In this world of ever increasing amount of data, Big Data Analytics has become inevitable for almost all forms of industries ranging from small scale to large scale like Governments, Political Campaigns, Healthcare, IT, Automobile, FMCG, Pharmaceutical, Textile, Media, Education, Insurance, Banking, Internet of Things, Energy, Electronics, Telecommunication, and in fact almost any industry. Big Data developers and analysts are so much in demand in almost all industries that the skill in this area can offer huge opportunities for even entry level employees.
Since 2012, every day 2.5 exabytes of data is estimated to have generated. IDC report 2012 prediction about the growth of global data volume to be 4.4 zettabytes to 44 zettabytes between 2013 and 2020 was pretty accurate. IDC predicts there will be 163 zettabytes of data by 2025. The only way to survive this boom in data is to have more and more Big Data professionals. Facebook alone processes more than 500 terabytes per day. Google receives over 63,000 searches per second on any given day, 3.8 million searches per minute, 228 million searches per hour, and 5.6 billion searches per day, 2 trillion searches per year.
