Data Scientist


Data Scientist, Decision Scientist or a Business Analyst describes new job opportunity in today’s era.

We have data all around us and a person who can use this data to provide a better insight is called a data scientist 

Data science is an interdisciplinary field about scientific methods, processes and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms either structured or unstructured.

Data science involves not just computer programming skills but also statistics and other logical reasoning aspects.

With the arrival of Internet of Things (I.O.T), data science is all set to grow.
The data scientist job is in huge demand now and is clearly going to be in demand in future too. 

 Major tools and Technology in this field are – R, SAS, SQL Python, Hadoop, Hive, Tableau, etc.
