Simplesoft Contributes to Job Profile for Data Professionals

Paul Hansford from Simplesoft Solutions traveled to Boston April 14th Р16th to participate in a professional panel with 10 people from across the US. This group was selected through their work in the data industry and was chartered to build an occupational profile for a middle-skilled Big Data specialist. The group was led by the Oceans of Data Institute of the Education Development Center, Inc. (EDI) and their work was observed by Community College professors. This event was supported through funding from the National Science Foundation. The outcome was a drafted occupational profile that describes the specific skills, knowledge, and behaviors needed to compete in a data-centered economy.  The next step in the process will be reaching out to peers to have them review the work that was completed to check for gaps and/or improvements.

All of this work is very similar to a previous profile (see below) designed for the tasks involved with the work of a data scientist role.

The projected quantity of data is growing each year and the clique that data is ‚Äúeverywhere‚ÄĚ in a sense is true.¬† There is a strong need to promote data literacy and incorporate data-driven thinking into our daily lives.¬† Our economy is increasingly defined by data as is our knowledge and skills for using it effectively.¬† Our stakeholders and customers are demanding an increase in results that help make sense of the data in place. Simplesoft was pleased to be able to contribute to the larger picture by having a tenured consultant like Paul share his data expertise. Paul has a unique set of skills to lend to this project with his 20 years of data consulting expertise and his more recent experience teaching at the collegiate level.

Paul was energized by his participation in this valuable work and commented, ‚ÄúIt was a real honor to contribute to the work in the world of data and databases. Organizations of all kinds are looking for data to help them transform their business model and increase productivity.¬† I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this highly important discussion.‚Ä̬† Simplesoft has highly skilled data specialists with a range of experience in system¬†integration, business intelligence, CRM, and marketing automation tools.¬† We are looking forward to seeing the finished work.
