Dear Colleagues,

We're going to be hearing a lot about data agility, big data governance,
and machine learning this year. Those are three of the top six trends for
big data identified by Information Management.

As the field evolves, organizations are quickly adopting new models and
processes, creating a strong demand for data scientists. The #1 job in
America had 4,184 active job listings on Glassdoor as of January 1.

With a Certificate in Big Data
the San Jose State University School of Information, aspiring or advancing
data scientists will be ready for this fast-growing job market. Courses
on data processing, retrieval and management technology tools, data
visualization and analysis, and large-scale data mining.

The nine-unit program is *100% online* with no mandatory in-person meeting
times. Its flexibility affords working professionals the convenience to fit
course work around their busy schedules. Plus, it can be completed in as
quickly as two semesters!
