FTE COSTS OF AI AND BIG DATA TALENT ACROSS THE GLOBE
India continues to offer a significant cost advantage for talent in new age skills. With FTE cost for AI and Analytics talent less than half of global FTE costs, India has a huge potential to supply to the growing global demand. The average FTE for talent (AI & Big Data / Analytics) in the Silicon Valley Bay is still significantly higher when compared to other global locations.
Globally, Machine Learning talent costs 15-25% more than Big Data/Analytics talent. At an average of $40,000, talent in India for these new age skills cost only around a third of the costs incurred in the Bay Area.
