What is the 21st century's fuel?

Data!! As more and more people around the world get used to online systems, tech companies and other organizations are trying to digitize everything that used to be done by hand. All of that adds even more data.

Did you Know?

In the last 20 years, the use of the internet has increased data almost as much as it did in the 100 years before that. Tech companies and other groups are working hard to figure out how to use all of this data.

This makes the area of data explode, and people want to hire experts in this niche.

There are currently more than 60+ niches in the field of data, and each one is different in its own way.
