Date Scientist: From large companies to small businesses, data and statistics is something that helps owners and decision makers change aspects of their operations in order to increase revenue. Since 2008, data scientist have been around to interpret online stats into more money. Digging through meaningless data that has no structure or flow is what these scientists are meant to do. They find coherence in a non-coherent message. Even though it sounds like this is a position every company should have, (especially those with large amounts of data), most don’t. This titled position is rather new and there aren’t many available to hire. All in good time.

Most large companies already have established IT Security experts, but on the scale of small business, a security analyst is a very important position that could potential save your business. Getting to the problem before it occurs is the name of the game. Avoiding spam, malware, and any sort of virus is key to maintaining your information and in turn your revenue. After security breaches, sales will almost inevitably drop for your company. Make sure you have an IT Security Analyst available and ready to go before the hackers.
Cloud Experts: in the ‘new technological age’ for businesses, most are transitioning to the ‘cloud’ for storage of information and property. Within the next three years, Cisco predicts that more than “four-fifths of all data center traffic will be store in the cloud.” In order for business to completely transition successfully, it is suggested that you hire a ‘cloud expert.’ This will ensure that your transition will run smoothly. Playing it safe is always the right choice. Choosing to transition to cloud based storage and technology by yourself could prove costly to your finances, information, and overall business.
Adaptation is the key to longevity. In order to survive in the business world, steps must be taken to stay on top of trends. Hiring talent in positions that are new and important could prove to be the difference in staying on top and sinking to the bottom.
