"Given the large amounts of new data created every single minute, analytics skills are no longer just a requirement for the IT professional, they are becoming increasingly important for the business professional as well. It's key for students to enter the workforce with a unique set of skills giving them an early advantage as the next era of cognitive computing and analytics continue to impact every facet of business."

Jim Goodnight, Chief Executive Officer, SAS
“Somehow, the CIO needs to reach across these silo databases and understand how they’re being used so they can see if they can achieve better efficiencies. It is, in some ways, the greatest opportunity and the greatest challenge.” ("Dr Jim Goodnight Talks the Business of Analytics," Swan, Georgina Oct. 19, 2010.)
