In our first Critical Connections: Salary Guide Roundtable, we examined key IT positions as well as salary expectations, demand in the field, background and skills needed, and general salary trends. This engaging discussion with Modis Managing Director Justin Meharg, Data Analyst Sabrina Beasley, and Head of PMO Edmundo Nava focuses on three highly-valued verticals within IT: Project Management, IT Management, and Data Science Analysis.
Join our own Matilda Anderson, as she sits down with our expert Modis Panel:
Project Managers for Productivity
Think of IT and project managers as the head coach, and good IT management is the glue that bonds together the project team. Essential for large projects, this task master is responsible for:
- Being a central contact
- Making sure tasks are delegated appropriately
- Meeting project goals and deadlines
- Managing multiple projects at once
As the different skill sets demanded across project management roles continues to grow, these roles are becoming more and more valued as key hires within an IT staff.
Data Analysts Deliver
Data Analysts are the wizards of the IT world: they are responsible for harnessed the never-ending stream of new data and utilizing it to best benefit their organization. An efficient data analyst can:
- Effectively evaluate raw data
- Extract important conclusions from their findings
- Present solutions for an organization both internally and externally
Because of this, data scientists and analysts are in massive demand right now as job postings for these positions have increased 15,000% between 2011 and 2012.
