UNIVERSITIES OF AFRICA ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR FUTURE WORKFORCE
Technology is evolving at a rapid pace, the skills of yesteryear are no longer enough to remain ahead of the pack. How are Universities adapting to this new world? As dynamics and demand change how is the academic domain insuring that their graduates are ready for the 4th Industrial Revolution?
BusinessTech notes in its article “The most popular fields of study in South Africa” that currently most students in South Africa (SA) are graduating with Education degrees followed by Business and Economic, Health and Engineering. Although close to 50% of graduates in the physical sciences and mathematics and statistics fields are in the age group 25–44, the low percentage of younger graduates in these fields of study is worrying, noted Stats SA.
It has been predicted that there will be steep shortage of Data Scientists in 2018. The industry is racing ahead where newer and better technology trends are concerned, but does it have sufficient manpower to grow and apply these technologies to real-world businesses problems? Are the current Data Scientists trained to handle “Intelligent Analytics”?

Currently, the Statistical Interpreter is distributed to OLSPS clients as a value-add software bundled with IBM SPSS Statistics. But watch this space as the Statistical Interpreter tool is set to be launched up, up to the cloud. This means that all SPSS Statistics users, even non-OLSPS clients, will have access to this tool. The cloud offering will operate under a pay-per-use model, and will be available for your report generation needs regardless of where you are – in the office, at home or travelling.
