The company’s Chief Customer Officer Sev Onyshkevych has been keen on the heavy data skills needed by enterprises for the past several years. In an interview back in 2016, Sev commented, “You see substantial interest in and a lack of supply of skilled resources in data sciences around the world for two reasons. One is that it’s a relatively new field, so having people that have say three to five years of deep experience in data sciences is difficult, in terms of the supply. It takes several years to really develop the skills, the experience, the gravitas that you really need in order to be able to lead and drive projects. So there is a dearth of talent in the market and those that have the experience can almost name their own price.

The second part is in terms of the interesting types of work that to a great extent has moved outside of the CIO’s or CTO’s purview to other functional areas like the CMO’s office, which is focused on consumer data or other business needs, innovating and transforming business using new technologies. For example, the advent of wearable technology or the “Internet of Things” drives massive amounts of data that feeds an application or product. But the big value is in making sense of that data, aggregating it across multiple different data sources, different channels and then doing a deep dive, finding insights and making personal recommendations, assessing risk, customer value, and constructing a personalized offer.”

With the ability to hone into the needs of enterprises and deliver on skilled labor shortages, ELEKS has been growing and there doesn’t seem to be any letting up for the foreseeable future as areas such as AI and IoT continue to take center stage.
