TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kforce Inc. (Nasdaq:KFRC), a
professional staffing and solutions firm, is sponsoring, exhibiting and
presenting on the evolution of big data and demand for IT professionals at the
2013 SIMposium conference on November 11 in Boston.
In an educational session at the 2013 SIMposium, Kforce plans to highlight why
the big data sector is expected to grow 40 percent by 2015. Kforce will also
discuss the growing need to continuously introduce new and richer data
sources, process ever expanding data sets faster and cheaper, as well as find
new ways to drive business value by unlocking the potential of big data.
The evolution of big data has also created an increased demand for
professionals with skills in data research and analysis. In fact, Kforce's
2014 Salary and Employment Guide reveals that some salaries for jobs
leveraging big data, such as data warehouse architects, have increased seven
percent over the last year.
In a second educational session, Kforce will discuss the increased demand for
IT professionals and business strategies employers can implement to stay ahead
of the competition. "Across the entire spectrum of IT skill sets employers are
facing a market of unprecedented demand and intense competition for top
