Publication Abstract

As demand for data expertise intensifies, educators are developing new programs to prepare professionals for emerging roles in data systems and services. They are challenged, however, by not knowing enough about evolving workforce needs and the state-of-the-art and emerging best practices at the forefront of the field. This interactive panel will report on recent studies on workforce demand and educational strategies that are meeting that demand through academic programs built in partnership with established data centers.
