Are you looking for a data analyst job? The chances of bagging a job at a private bank are more than that a public bank. The former is more likely to hire you than the latter.
As a matter of fact, data analytics is widely being used in the private banking and e-commerce sectors – according to a report on the state of data analytics in Indian business. The veritable report was released last month by Analytics India Magazine in association with the data science institute INSOFE. Next to banking and ecommerce, telecom and financial service sectors have started to adopt the tools of data analytics on a larger scale, the report mentioned.
The report was prepared focusing on 50 large firms across myriad sectors, namely Maruti Suzuki and Tata Motors in automobiles, ONGC and Reliance Industries under oil-drilling and refineries, Zomato and Paytm under e-commerce tab, and HDFC and the State Bank of India in banking.
If you follow the study closely, you will discover that in a nutshell, data analytics and data science boasts of a healthy adoption rate all throughout – 64% large Indian firms has started implementing this wonder tool at their workplaces. As a fact, if a firm is found to have an analytics penetration rate of minimum 0.75% (which means, at least one analytics professional is found out of 133 employees in a company), we can say the company has adopted analytics.
Nevertheless, the rate of adoption was not universal overall. We can see that infrastructure firms have zero adoption rates – this might be due to a lack of resources to power up a robust analytics facility or whatever. Also, steel, power and oil exhibited low adoption rates as well with not even 40% of the surveyed firms crossing the 0.75% bar. On contrary, private banks and telecom industry showed a total 100% adoption rates.
Astonishingly, public sector banks showed a 50% adoption rate- almost half of the rate in the private sector.
The study revealed more and more companies in India are looking forward to data analytics to boost sales and marketing initiatives. The tools of analytics are largely employed in the sales domain, followed by finance and operations.
Apparently, not much of the results were directly comparable with that of the last year’s study. Interestingly, one metric – analytics penetration rate – was measured last year as well, which is nothing but the ratio of analytics-oriented employees to the total. Also, last year, you would have found one out of 59 employees in an average organization, which has now reached one data analyst for every 36 employees.
