1. Why should I learn the skillsets of a data engineer?
It is estimated that the amount of data generated in 2020 is equivalent to 1.7MB per second for every person on earth. The amount of data created is expected to reach approximately 2100 zettabytes by 2035 (1 zettabyte is equivalent to a billion terrabytes!). This is driven by increasing usage of technology such as smart devices, social media, online entertainment, IOT devices. Corporations would need to rely more and more on data professionals like data engineers to capture and seamlessly integrate the data into the company’s ecosystem. Data engineer jobs are one of the fastest growing jobs in Malaysia and South East Asia. The big data analytics (BDA) market in Malaysia is expected to grow to US$1.9 billion (about RM7.85 billion) in 2025, from US$1.1 billion in 2021, according to Malaysia Digital Economy Corp’s (MDEC) commissioned study by IDC.
