Analytics - Data Science

Data science is an interdisciplinary field about processes and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured,  which is a continuation of some of the data analysis fields such as statistics, data mining, and predictive analytics.

Functions of Data Science and how it contributes to the ITaaS model:

  • Manage large amounts of data despite hardware, software, and bandwidth constraints.

  • Merge data sources.

  • Ensure consistency of datasets.

  • Create visualizations to aid in understanding data.

  • Build mathematical models using the data.

  • Present and communicate the data insights/findings.

  • Expected to produce answers in days rather than months.

  • Work by exploratory analysis and rapid iteration.

  • Produce and present results with dashboards (displays of current values).
