turned their help desk managers into true data analysts; government agencies 
that have become more effective and efficient by understanding and employing 
data analytics principles; and cybersecurity professionals who are true threat 
hunters because they know how to mine data.

that is digitally fluent, according to Stanger. In the area of cybersecurity, 
for example, organizations need to bring security analytics skills to various

"Unfortunately, we don't have enough analytics experts," Stanger noted.

Companies feel the effects of poor data management or insufficient data 
analysis in many ways. Chief among these is wasted time, cited by 38% of 
companies surveyed by CompTIA. Other shortcomings include the inability to 
reach new customer segments (29%), inefficient decision making and a lack of 
agility (29%) and reduced margins due to inefficiencies (27%).(1)

As the importance of data analytics grows, CompTIA is addressing the need for 
more data skills through its CompTIA Data+ certification. Introduced in 2022, 
CompTIA Data+ is an early-career data analytics certification that validates 
the skills required to facilitate data-driven business decisions. These skills 
include mining, manipulating, visualizing, reporting and safeguarding data in 
support of data-driven decision making. More information is available at
