As the use of technology expands, data engineering is becoming increasingly vital, and the demand for the
specialized expertise of data engineers is growing. In fact, according to the Dice Tech Job Report, data engineering
was the fastest growing tech occupation in 2020. Why? Because before data scientists can gain useful information
from the mountains of data possessed by today’s organizations, the data must be configured, warehoused, and
made accessible, and data engineers are responsible for building the infrastructure.
