Need for Data & AI Talent

The ongoing impact of data & AI calls for practitioners to reassess their skills, while organizations need to strategize on remaining competitive in a rapidly evolving landscape. According to PwC’s Global CEO Survey, over 50% of CEOs recognize that changing customer preferences, regulatory change, skills shortages, and technology disruption are the main forces likely to impact industry profitability in the next decade. Financial services, telecommunications/media/technology, and healthcare sectors, including pharmaceuticals, are the most susceptible to technological disruption. The urgent need to upskill and reskill existing workforces has never been clearer.

Additionally, LinkedIn underscores the importance of hands-on learning over traditional classroom learning for boosting worker productivity and effectiveness. Hands-on labs offer immersive experiences that mimic real-world scenarios, allowing learners to apply their skills practically, resulting in faster and more efficient learning and superior skill outcomes.
