Introduction to Data Science Methodology

Duration: One Day Course

Prerequisite: None

Data Science projects are not typical business or IT projects – these projects start with a business problem or opportunity to be explored and result in gaining new insights as well as producing analytical models – meaning data science projects have different deliverables, pitfalls, and challenges. Attempting to deliver a data science project with traditional IT project methodologies contributes to the high rate of data science project failures. The Cross-industry standard process for data mining, otherwise known as CRISP-DM is the accepted methodology for data science projects and addresses the success factors required for data science projects. This course provides an introduction to data science methodology and highlights pitfalls to avoid and best practices to leverage.
