Tackling the UK Data Skills Gap with Primary Engineer
25 Jan 2021
To align with the explosion of technology and the big data revolution, we deliver advanced data solutions and strategic consultancy services to help clients drive efficiencies, build business, and gain competitive advantage.
For almost 15 years, we have helped clients globally using the latest Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and proprietary visualisation tools to model and forecast behaviour and ‘Put Data to Work’. Delivering enhanced financial returns, consistently developing customer experience and improving employee engagement are just some of the examples of how sharing intelligent, relevant insights has helped our clients.
Despite the seemingly obvious benefits of implementing big data analytics and data strategies and the sheer volume of data that is available to businesses and consumers alike, we still see a disconnect in the market between data skills and the volume of data science and engineering roles in industry.
As a company, we are passionate about using “data for good” and ensuring that we encourage the application of data inline with our company values, which is why we are pleased to announce our support of Primary Engineer and our partnership with them this year as a National Funding Partner for the Statwars Competition.
Paul Alexander, CEO and Founder of Beyond Analysis said: “We are conscious of the need for future generations to understand and develop the data skills that every business needs. It is not difficult to see why we are so passionate about supporting STATWARS and Primary Engineer in improving education and raising awareness of the exciting opportunities available to young people.”
