Please add your thoughts about it below. Thanks!

.CDMP or CIMP--both can drive data modelers careers--and there are on line and university courses that support these. Most progressive universities offer Masters in Big Data--yes there is such a thing and I highly recommend it.

But, on the short term, I believe that experience coupled with an understanding of your business path's data inputs (weather, Point of Sale, telemetric, machine data, customer data etc) will drive your career.

The best place to start--drive the implementation of a modern cloud based modelers tool-and become its subject matter expert. Not only will you begin to obtain the necessary experience but you will bring real value to your company or organization. And I have found that once you implement these kind of tools--it’s like drinking Mom's summer sugar & water flavored drinks--everyone at your company will want to drink.
