The data scientist is one of today’s most sought-after roles in business, but it’s often unclear what this role really involves, how it can work with the rest of our business functions, and how it best contributes to the work of our teams.
In this course, we describe more than the role of data science in our organizations. We go beyond that to look at how data science interacts with all the other parts of the business it touches. For example, how do we provision data, tools, and services for data science? How do we test and integrate the work of advanced analytics?
We will look at how to support data science effectively, taking account of what IT, business management, and even HR have to know in order to hire, retain, and get the best out of data science in the enterprise.
We’ll also look at the role of automated data science applications and how far you can go with what some analysts have described controversially as “citizen data scientists”—business users armed with a little knowledge and powerful tools.
