The data manager is one of the new professions born from the emergence of Big Data. The computerization of companies has led to the production of a large amount of information. The data manager is responsible for collecting, managing and setting up databases.
Originally anchored in the banking-insurance, statistics or health sectors, the data manager is now a position that can be found in most large groups and increasingly in smaller structures. It is a real competitive advantage in the perception of demand and in marketing analysis.
He is therefore both in statistical analysis but also responsible for data management and IT optimization of the company's operations.
Of course, this position requires a perfect mastery of computers and specialized management software. This is an essentially solitary position, but one that must nevertheless remain connected to the team. The data manager must be able to coordinate the proper use of databases by other employees and also communicate the results of his work. Furthermore, complete discretion is required, as most of the information processed within the company is confidential.
The data manager (also called data scientist or data analyst) is usually trained in computer science or statistics. As this profile is increasingly sought after, graduates with two years of higher education may be eligible for these positions.
A double skill (cross marketing or finance) is often appreciated by companies, it allows a more refined approach to the field.
