… that there is great demand for experts in data and information science?

Most companies have a huge amount of electronically stored information. Even if data warehouses have been established, the stored information is often not used professionally, e.g. using methods of data condensation, processing and development. These companies need experienced professionals who use their data to generate information and knowledge for decision-making documents, regular analyses or for process control.
