Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Data analytics can be looked at as a subset of data science. Both the disciplines work in tandem to make sense of data. A data science professional builds models and finds out strategies to extract insights from data. An analyst is tasked with using analytical models to identify patterns in data. A data science certification program can help you take either way based on your specialization.

Big data defines the tools and the practices applied to collect, store, and manage large amounts of data as well as a large amount of data itself. Big data is useful because there is data science, and data science is applicable because of big data.

Mathematics is one of the key disciplines that make data science. As a data professional, you will be dealing with statistical models, and linear programming, hence mathematical knowledge is a pre-requisite. If you did not have maths during your academic years, or if you have lost the touch, there are training programs that can help you bridge the gap before you enroll in a data science course.

As a data science professional, you will be working with people as part of a team. It is very important to communicate effectively, build storytelling skills, and develop organizational habits. As a working professional, you must have developed these qualities over the years. During the data science course, you will have an opportunity to perfect these skills while working on projects.

There is no age limit when it comes to joining a data science certification course.

Data science combines mathematics, statistics, and computer science hence coming from a STEM background carries a heavy advantage. But if you are from a background like economics, or business, you can possibly take up a data science course. Yes, it will take extra effort on your part.

Predictive analytics is the study of data patterns to predict an outcome. It involves correlating multiple multiple data points to find insights. This can be used in a lot of different situations from disaster aversion to product pricing.

Yes, you can learn data science on your own with the help of free resources and even get deep into machine learning without undergoing a data science certification course. However, there are two issues – one, you need to spend a lot of time looking for resources that will be useful, and two, you will find it difficult to get your foot into a big company without a certification.

What is Data Science?

Data science is a multidisciplinary approach to extract meaningful insights from data by collecting, cleaning, studying, and analyzing it. It combines principles of mathematics, statistics, artificial intelligence, and computer engineering to locate patterns in data that lead to predictions and aid decision making.

Applications of data science in various industries

The following are a few industries that put a lot of stress on data-driven process enhancement and business development. This is just to give you a glimpse of the diverse scope of the discipline and it is not nearly all-inclusive.

The Tech Giants - FAANG

The big five of the technology industry, Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, and Google, all spend extensively on data science and depend on data-driven insights to enhance customer experience, engagement, retention, and overall ROI. For instance, Netflix makes predictive data analytics to curate the movie and shows suggestions for your taste. How do you think Amazon comes up with the on-point additional product suggestions based on what you are buying? Similarly, Google does a stellar job at processing data to help you find what you are looking for faster.

The Healthcare Industry

The healthcare sector contributes 30% of the world’s data volume. It produces data at every level – from clinical trials to insurance data. There is still a lot of gaps in terms of data utilization when it comes to the healthcare sector. It is definitely an area that will have maximum traction for data-driven managers in the coming days.

Finance and Banking

The banking sector was among the first to employ data science extensively. It was primarily to identify potential loan defaulters. It is still among the industries that hires the highest number of data analysts.

The Oil and Gas Industry

The oil and gas industry makes a profit of $3 billion daily – a little breakdown here and an error there can cost millions of dollars. Data science is applied heavily by oil and gas companies to enhance processes, identify machinery that could malfunction in the future, and design efficient route maps, among other things.

Cyber Security

The hackers are getting better by the day. They have powerful scanners, large forums, and a lot of resources to draw from. Applied data science can go a long way in terms of predicting attacks, prescribing solutions, and recommending defensive measures.

Manufacturing and Retail

The issue of process enhancement comes back like a refrain. You cannot put enough stress on the importance of the small things – the location of a factory, the equipment you buy, the people you hire, the stores you invest in, everything can be optimized with the help of data.

Data is a key strategic element irrespective of the industries. It’s hard to identify any industry that does not apply data science. A PG in Data Science exposes you to potentially limitless opportunities.
