Similarly, the workforce, who support existing and new technologies are also at risk. In this ever-changing world of technology, now it has become mandatory for everyone to keep a track of the changes & upgrade themselves accordingly. An expert in one technology, might become a liability to the organization, if the technology itself is scrapped after couple of years & is replaced with another. Hence, the importance of learning new skills, has increased many folds in last few years.

Adding to these, even the economic conditions of many countries has started falling apart which has made the job market very competitive. To survive the competition & end up on the winning side, we have listed few niche technologies, which can give the readers an edge over the others:

1. Data Analytics

The process of analyzing the data to determine patterns and correlate them to understand the market trends & customer’s preference is known as Data Analytics. This helps the organizations to understand and align their business properly.

For example, when a user uses Facebook, they see many ads on the screen. These ads are not published on the screen based on any assumptions. The websites collect the browsing history details of the users from the cookies & based on user’s interest, adds are flashed on the user’s screen.

To become a successful data analyst, we have listed below few of the most valued certifications in the industry:

IBM Certified Data Engineer – Big Data IBM Professional Certification Program
IBM Certified Data Architect – Big Data IBM Professional Certification Program
EMC Proven Professional Data Scientist Associate (EMCDSA) Dell EMC Education Services

2. Database Management

With the ever-increasing size of the Data being analyzed & stored by the organizations now-a-days, which is very critical for their business, the requirement of having a secure & robust Database has also increased.

Hence, it has become very important for the organizations to have a Database Management in place which helps the users & programmers a way to create, update, manage and retrieve data, all in a systematic and well-defined way. To capture & analyze the data stored in the Database, the database management system should be able to interact with end-users, another applications & the database itself.

But just having a Database Management in place without a skilled administrator is like having a pair of firestone & not knowing how to light the fire. Hence, skilled Database administers are highly valued in the industry.
