TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kforce Inc. (Nasdaq:KFRC), a professional staffing and solutions firm, is sponsoring, exhibiting and presenting on the evolution of big data and demand for IT professionals at the 2013 SIMposium conference on November 11 in Boston.

In an educational session at the 2013 SIMposium, Kforce plans to highlight why the big data sector is expected to grow 40 percent by 2015. Kforce will also discuss the growing need to continuously introduce new and richer data sources, process ever expanding data sets faster and cheaper, as well as find new ways to drive business value by unlocking the potential of big data.

The evolution of big data has also created an increased demand for professionals with skills in data research and analysis. In fact, Kforce's 2014 Salary and Employment Guide reveals that some salaries for jobs leveraging big data, such as data warehouse architects, have increased seven percent over the last year.

In a second educational session, Kforce will discuss the increased demand for IT professionals and business strategies employers can implement to stay ahead of the competition. "Across the entire spectrum of IT skill sets employers are facing a market of unprecedented demand and intense competition for top talent," said David Bair, Kforce Executive Director of Technology. "Businesses attending Kforce's educational sessions at this year's SIMposium conference will gain valuable knowledge on the IT job market, as well as insight into the evolution of big data."
