New Client Example - Washington Tech Industry Association

One of our biggest data projects ever.

It took us a couple of years to mature the eIMPACT data analytics and dashboard solution to pass muster with the Washington Technology Industry Association. Having met a few years ago we kept in touch while developing new capabilities as we went along and keeping our laser focus on building customized economic and workforce dashboards.

We were thrilled to bring WTIA on as a client this year. Not just the Washington voice for the tech industry, WTIA runs tech workforce development programs in multiple cities across the U.S. with their Apprenti program.
WTIA had utilized a few data services over the years but they hadn't gotten the granularity of workforce data to meet their needs. In CEO Michael Schutzler's words "we would have needed a small team of data scientists to accomplish what we were trying to do."

The WTIA Tech Workforce Dashboard launched this week and we are excited to announce it. As the full site is on a member-only section of their website, we are highlighting a few cool components in this blog post.

Thanks to the whole team at WTIA who collaborated with us on this. You have helped us become a better company in the process.

WTIA: Tech Workforce + Economic Impact

This data dashboard project spans not only the Seattle and State of Washington but also 5 MSAs around the country. We broke down supply/demand curves for specific tech jobs, from Cyber Security Analyst to Cloud Operations Architect to Network Operations Developer - CRM. In other words, specific technical disciplines that today's technology companies need.

We also created a complete tech industry impact data story for the State of Washington. This section addresses everything from tech job multiplier to tax contributions to startup formation trends.

Since we can't share the full set of dashboards we've highlighted a few charts below. Of course, you could become a WTIA member and gain full access :)

  1. Talent Pipeline – how STEM degrees conferred compares to unfilled tech job openings

  2. STEM Degrees Trend – how higher ed has ramped up tech degrees over the years

  3. Job Postings Trend – for specific tech jobs what's been the trend in openings

  4. Supply & Demand by Occupation – what is the current snapshot of workers vs open positions

  5. Wage Comparisons – how does one region stack up and compare against national benchmark
