Thus, for businesses to comply with consumer needs, market fluctuations, processing data, identifying both invisible demand and supply movements and obtaining workable acumen are becoming essential.

Demand and supply gap:

There is a big gap between the demand and supply of data scientists. Demand for Data Engineers has overtaken supply over the past years and the last few years have thus observed a continuous shortfall of skilled data engineers. A lesser number of aspirants opting for specialized training and the deficit of software engineers are the two main reasons for the existing demand-supply gap.

Why the gap:

The work role of a Data Engineer or a Data Scientist is a bit tricky, and it demands excellent skills in computer science and programming. While the gap can be overpassed with practice and training, quality data engineers or data scientists must have practical, hands-on skills of handling huge array of data. This is a time-consuming process. However, universities have updated their curriculum as per industry standards and started training students. There are btech data science colleges in Indore, Pune, Mumbai, and other major cities that make their student industry ready by training them with live projects, internships etc.

Salary: The basic salary of the data science professionals is higher than that of engineers. When switching between jobs, most aspirants look ahead to securing a 25%-30% hike while data scientists can ask for a raise of 35%-45%.

To sum it up, increase in demand of data scientists in the present scenario, is being considered as the red-hot job for the years to come.
