big data and softwareOur Software & Big Data Division is a great example of how we adapt as the technology sector does. Originally working across manufacturing and CRM vendors, we now have a major focus on Big Data due to the huge expansion in this area.

The market is set to increase massively, from a conservative $12bn in 2012 to $50bn in 2018. By 2020, IT departments will need 10 times more processing power to handle at least 50 times the data that they are producing today. This increase will pave the way for a huge demand for very skilled and experienced personnel, who can bring immediate value and expertise. Today, companies are taking advantage of this information and using it for many different applications. This can include Fraud Detection, Online Gaming, Holiday Reservations and Bookings, Price Comparison , DNA profiling, Credit Scoring etc.

Emerald Technology have been working with BI, Data Warehousing and Analytics companies since the proliferation of these technologies at the turn of the century; however a team with a complete focus on the Big Data space was formed in 2012. We now have a team of experienced Business Developers, Researchers and Consultants who share between them more than 30 years within recruitment, much of this around this sector.

Within this space, we have worked more than 280 roles worldwide and have more than 35 clients, and we’re still growing…
