Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data, and the immensity of today’s data has made data engineers more important than ever. Business Insider reports that there will be more than 64 billion IoT devices by 2025, up from about 10 billion in 2018,
and 9 billion in 2017″.
With this growth comes a lot more data from a lot more sources, and thus a lot more need for engineers who
can effectively process and channel it.
Data engineering is responsible for finding trends in data sets and developing algorithms to help make raw data more useful to the enterprise. Our responsibility is to build algorithms to help give easier access to raw data, to optimize data retrieval,
develop dashboards, reports and other visualizations for stakeholders.
