Data science is the analysis of where information comes from, what it signifies and how it can be turned into a valuable and important resource in the creation of business and IT strategies. Data science is a multidisciplinary blend of data inference, algorithm development, and technology in order to solve analytically complex problems. It is the field of Big Data , Hadoop which seeks to provide meaningful information from large amounts of complex data.
Data science is all about being inquisitive – asking new questions, making new discoveries, and learning new things. Data Science mixes different field areas of work in statistics and computation in order to interpret data for the objective of decision making. Data science is a blend of skills in three major areas:
- Mathematics Expertise
- Technology and Hacking
- Strong Business Acumen
A data scientist is an individual who is excellent at statistics than any software engineer and better at software engineering than any other statistician. Data scientists take an enormous mass of messy data points (unstructured and structured) and use their formidable skills in math, statistics, and programming to clean, massage and organize them.
