AIA teams with SAS to address AI skills shortage

The Analytics Institute of Australia (AIA) has joined forces with SAS to attempt to build Australia’s AI and analytics skills workforce.

AIA has been working with SAS to design the curricula for the courses the institute offers, including its Bachelor of Analytics and Bachelor of Business Transformation courses.

SAS data, analytics and AI solutions have been integrated into the course material to help students learn how to extract data insights for informed decision-making.

Analytics Institute of Australia CEO Dr Andrew Podbury said the new courses have been designed to meet pressing industry demands. “Our strategic partnership with SAS is setting new educational benchmarks, ensuring students seamlessly gain SAS software proficiency through both technical and practical training,” he said.

“Companies across various industries, from banking to health care and retail, rely daily on SAS’s AI and data solutions for critical decision-making. As our students enter the job market, they will have a significant advantage with deep SAS knowledge and experience — it’s like having a golden ticket to the world of data analytics and most importantly, the know-how for maximising its full potential.”

The latest ACS Australia’s Digital Pulse Report estimated that 1.3 million new technology skilled jobs will need to be filled by 2030, with critical thinking, people skills, governance and practical use-case applications expected to become as important as coding and programming.
