  • Abstract

    Over the past few years, there has been a veritable explosion of hiring in the field of data science. Just ten years ago, the phrase data scientist was almost unheard of; nowadays, data scientist positions are advertised across numerous industries, with a particular focus on high tech. What is this position and why is it relevant? In this webinar, we discussed this position from a number of angles—what the term “data science” means, what skills a data scientist brings to the table, what competitive edge data science can bring to your team, and the differences between data science and business analysis. We also discussed a number of case studies that describe how data science can be integrated into existing businesses as well as how to best make use of data scientists’ skills.
