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.</span
  • 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).
