Webinar Abstract

Data scientists are a new type of analyst—part data engineer, part statistician, and part business analyst. And they're in high demand. Companies are combing through résumés and job websites, interviewing recent university grads, and poaching from their competitors in an effort to bring these new talents into their organizations. Of course, we’ve had statistical analysts in our organizations for years. Unfortunately, although these people are great at analyzing data, they are not always the best at explaining their findings to executives and business workers in understandable terms. Data scientists may be the people who can finally bridge the gap between doing advanced data analysis and using the findings to produce business results that align with an organization's goals.

You will learn:

  • Understanding the role of data science in business analytics
  • Building a data science team
  • Understanding data science techniques, technologies, and tools
  • Making data science more approachable
  • Using data science to gain competitive advantage
