Extensive database that include past performances of many different industries have been compared to reach to this conclusion.

There’s strong demand for data scientists, people who know how to deal with one of today’s most popular technology topics, Big Data. That’s the huge trove of raw information that’s now available thanks to the explosion of social media, sensors and other sources. The U.S. Department of Labor forecasts that the number of analytics-based jobs will grow by more than 20 percent between now and 2018 — far outstripping most other categories. At a time when so many recent college graduates are underemployed or searching for jobs, analytics offers the promise of a great career at the cutting edge of technology, business and social change.

How do you start with less budget than last year but still make greater returns? Not to mention fewer skilled people and increase in energy costs. According to Pike Research, cloud computing will lead to a global saving of 38% on energy costs as smaller, older, less efficient centers are moved into highly virtualized and automated intelligent systems. Even with 10 under utilized servers a business can save more than $100,000 over 5 years.

“We have to get to open virtualization. There is still a lot of churn in this world and when it comes back to virtualization and the cloud, too many people are trying to control the pieces. A VM is not a VM is not a VM. There are too many variations and clients are struggling with that. KVM here is very important,” said IBM Vice President Robert LeBlanc, about the open source hypervisor incorporated in Linux and backed by Red Hat.
