In 2020, an estimated 64.2 zettabytes of data were generated globally, and by 2025, that number is expected to rise to 180 zettabytes. Considering these figures, it’s no surprise that data professionals are in high demand. Those who know how to create the Data Architecture to manage this data are the most in demand – and they are data engineers.
